Is anyone a member of the Lush forum? The hunt sabbing movement is being attacked on that forum and Lush forum members are needed to stick up for the sabs and for Lush's anti-hunting stance (see quote box below).
I can't get on there as my password is not working correctly and the site has not responded to my password reminder requests.
Apparently there is a big ruckus going on over there with some hunters on the boards spreading lies about what sabbing involves. They are saying the sabs are violent, which they are not. They are simply observers to hunts and trying to ensure there are no breaches of the anti-hunting laws and that any breaches are documented and reported to the authorities. The only two hunt related convictions for violence in the last year have both been hunt supporters who assaulted sabs.
The cosmetics company Lush is launching a bubble bath it hopes will raise tens of thousands of pounds for anti-blood sports activists who sabotage fox hunts.
The Hunt Saboteurs Association will be the latest beneficiary of proceeds from Lush, the ethical producer of handmade soaps which has gained a reputation for backing radical protest groups.
