Or – SET UP YOUR OWN GROUP!

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.

How to do it

Email Pip info@actionagainstfoxhunting.org

Or message us through our Facebook page. We can answer all your questions and we will give you all the support you need. If there is another group nearby, we can support you for the first few stalls, while you gain confidence.
