Local Groups

Our purpose at AAF is to expose foxhunting for what it is. We do this by talking to people face to face in the street. Putting it simply:

  • Two or more AAF volunteers get together, find somewhere public to stand, offer leaflets and start conversations about foxhunting. It can be as complex or as simple as you like. It can be a frequent thing, or an occasional one. You get to choose.

AT AAF, WE ARE ALWAYS POLITE AND WE ALWAYS LISTEN. BUT WE ARE ALSO DETERMINED AND STEELY. THE PUBLIC NEED TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON AND IT’S UP TO US TO TELL THEM.  AFTER ALL, THE HUNTERS NEVER WILL.

DON’T WORRY IF YOU THINK YOU DON’T KNOW ENOUGH. WE’LL TEACH YOU. 

We also welcome other groups involved with outreach, leafleting  and demonstrations against fox hunting. If you run a group and would like us to give you a spot on this page, please contact us.

If you can’t find a group near you, but would like to set one up, please email Pip at info@actionagainstfoxhunting.org
