Save Our Forests Campaign Update

If you are in England please take 5 minutes to do this! The Save our Forests campaign of 38 degrees writes:

Our campaign to Save Our Forests hit the headlines this weekend! First our petition and an opinion poll – paid for by hundreds of 38 Degrees members – were reported on Countryfile, the Today programme and BBC 5 Live breakfast. Then a group including the Archbishop of Canterbury backed our campaign – making the front page of the Sunday Telegraph!

Our pressure has got the government worried. They’ve started a charm offensive, telling us that they love forests too. But right now, despite the warm fuzzy words, David Cameron is pushing through changes to the law. He wants to make it legal to sell off 100% of our woodlands.

David Cameron can only change the law – and sell all our forests – if MPs vote the changes through Parliament. That makes MPs a key target for our campaign. We need to make sure that our MPs are hearing from local voters.

Can you send your MP a quick email today? It is quick and easy to email your MP using the 38 Degrees website. You can find your MP just by putting in your postcode, and there is some suggested text to use in your message.
