UCSW at CHATSWORTH COUNTRY FAIR 2007

Friday 31 August to Sunday 2 September

UCSW Legal Adviser Brian Friend, Litigant in Person in the House of Lords Scottish Hunting Act appeal, will speak on this Government’s vicious attack on the Countryside & its’ Way of Life at 2:00pm on Friday 31st August at Chatsworth Country Fair.

Following the cancellation of the CLA Game Fair in July, including the UCSW sponsored seminar on the Hunting Act Appeal, we contacted the Chatsworth organisers to see if they could provide a platform for Brian Friend in the run up to his Appeal being heard in the House of Lords from 11th October 2007.

Entitled Presentation on the Hunting Act Human Rights Appeal, UCSW have been liaising with Adrian Francis of Terrier Roadshow fame who is organising the new Seminar Arena by Lady Mary’s Bower – full details below.

The Union of Country Sports Workers will have their usual stand with membership information and related merchandise in the newly situated Countryman’s Walk beside the River Derwent.

Brian Friend will be available on Friday and Saturday to explain about his forthcoming House of Lords appeal against the hunting ban in Scotland and how, with the help of the UCSW, he has started a Campaign to stop the harassment and distress caused by the so called hunt monitors to Hunt staff and members whilst legally hunting. Under the 1997 Protection from Harassment Act and the 1986 Public Order Act, everyone in the United Kingdom is protected from being harassed or distressed by the activities of others.

“ Mindful that an ethnic community is a group of people with a common cultural or national tradition, cultural, civil, social, personal and human rights are guaranteed by treaty and law to Gypsies, Saami Indians, Eskimos, aborigines, all ethnic minorities, criminals, terrorists, asylum seekers and to indigenous peoples everywhere, but not apparently to the United Kingdom’s Hunting community an indigenous ethnic group dating back to the Iron Age.”
