The government is planning a massive sell off of our national forests. They could be auctioned and fenced off, run down, logged or turned into golf courses and holiday villages. The campaign against the sell off is growing fast, over 83,000 of us have signed the petition already. Hundreds of people have downloaded posters and leaflets from the save our forests action centre to sound the alarm with groups springing up across the country to fight the forest sell off.
The petition text:
- “Save our forests – don’t sell them off to the highest bidder”
- Don’t let private companies chop down our woodland.
Protect trees for the conservation of wildlife and the enjoyment of the public.
