A peaceful Demonstration to raise awareness about the underlying exploitation of Greyhounds in racing.

Sadly, deaths and serious injuries to dogs running on the tracks are relatively common, and the existence of a major track like Nottingham is responsible for the putting to death of about 500 greyhounds every year.

According to a Guardian article: “Greyhound tracks are closing and the industry isn’t doing enough to care for the thousands of dogs who face an uncertain fate”

*Raise awareness about the plight of greyhounds bred for racing.
*Campaign for the abolition of commercial greyhound racing.
*Promote greyhounds as pets.
*The government to pass legislation making it illegal to place or accept bets on greyhound racing.*
*The general public to NEVER attend or bet on greyhound racing, so the industry fades away through lack of support.

Demo at 6.30pm at Daleside Road Roundabout, (the entrance to Nottingham Greyhound Stadium).

Probably every 2 weeks, but call 07703 031667 to confirm.
