We Asked 14 Anti–Fox-Hunting Protesters For Their Messages To David Cameron

"Give it up," wrote Queen guitarist Brian May at a protest outside Westminster.

Posted on

At an anti–fox-hunting protest outside of the houses of parliament on Tuesday, hundreds of people, led by Queen guitarist Brian May, opposed the relaxation of the hunting ban.

The government had planned to have a free vote in parliament which, if passed, would have allowed hunts to use unlimited numbers of dogs to hunt foxes rather than the two which are currently allowed.

The vote, which was due to take place on Wednesday, was postponed after the SNP pledged to vote against it, meaning it would have been likely to have been defeated. The protesters used today as a celebration of that, but also as a warning to the government to "keep the ban". These are the protesters' messages to David Cameron.

8. Angus Robertson, the leader of the SNP in Westminster, is "glad" his party made the decisive move that made the government postpone its fox-hunting vote.
