Badger action in Aberystwyth

We have been asked to promote a free screening of the short but powerful Pembrokeshire Against the Cull film "Why we believe culling badgers is a really bad idea" at The Morlan Centre, Morfa Mawr, North Parade, Aberystwyth (Next to Spar) on Wednesday 13th April at 7pm. All welcome.

Other Aberystwyth events
  • Saturday 16th April. Street stall in Aberystwyth town centre (outside Siop y Pethe) 11am to 2pm. The group will be distributing leaflets encouraging voting for anti-cull candidates as well as the current PAC information leaflet. Get copies of all the leaflets here - please consider putting them in your window.
  • Wednesday 27th April. Street stall in Aberystwyth town centre, as above. 11am to 2pm.
  • Saturday 30th April. Silent procession through Aberystwyth (complete with grim reaper!) , starting from Elin Jones's constituency office (Plaid Cymru offices) in Pier Street at 11:30 and ending outside the WAG building in Boulevard Saint Brieuc. Please dress in black and/or white and bring flowers. This will be a peaceful and dignified event. Be one of the million against the cull! Update 30th April: The event was huge success with over 50 people taking place in a peaceful procession. One source of amusement was when the procession passed a group of heckling Plaid Cymru supporters: one of the young children of a Plaid Cymru councillor yelled out "Save the badgers!", obviously a very sensible and compassionate child. Sadly he was shouted at by his Plaid Cymru parents when they should have been proud of him...
The group need help and support with all these events. Please contact them if you can give any time, even if only for one event or even if only for a short period. They can make a real difference to the election result. It would only take a 6% swing to oust Elin Jones, for example! Email them at info@dyfibadgergroup.org.

The film can also be seen below.
