Badger Cull - Protest Against Tesco in Bristol

Yesterday (13th October), around 25 anti- badger cull activists held a demonstration outside the Tesco Metro store in Broadmead, Bristol, and with many wearing black "Fuck the Cull" t-shirts or badger masks, we looked like we meant business. Tesco sell milk from the cull areas and the demonstration was intended to highlight this issue and ask people to buy their milk from stores that do not buy their milk from these areas, such as the Co-op, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer.

Several hundred leaflets were handed out to shoppers, many of whom stopped to chat about the cull and find out more, or ask what they could to help. Few were undecided - many people expressed their disgust about the cull and some enquired about the scientific facts - which we had to hand and were able to answer their questions.
