'This may be seen as a little silly, but the pro-hunting protest yesterday put me in mind of it. Performers protests: marching bands, buskers, musicians, even jugglers etc. Might catch the popular imagination...'


Ah yes- The Countryside Alliance.

They were successful in beating down the govt. to a compromise position.

Although their main objective was to preserve the tradition of fox hunting with hounds- with which I'd be reluctant to align myself- there were many other aspects of country life which would include parallels with the aspects of the new PEL proposals with which folk musicians, singers, dancers & other interested parties are presently taking issue.

How do others feel about approaching them for support?
