Earlier this year our forests were saved from being sold off to private buyers. But it seems that the danger is not passed. The government are still deciding what to do with the forests. Now, to say that I don't trust all the people that run this country is an understatement. I have had too much experience with councils running through land sales through the back door and going against what people actually want to trust that they will not try another way to sell forests against the wishes of the people.
38 degrees is a very good organisation that hugely helped stop the bill that was going to allow the forests to be sold off. They are now getting together a petition to show the government just what our national forests mean to people. If any of you feel strongly enough about the issue then please take the time to fill in this very short questionnaire and lend your support to this very worthy cause. Once they are gone, they are gone forever and bear in mind that less than 0.5% of the population already own or control more than 70% of the land in UK, leaving the other 99.5% of us squashed onto what is left. Lets not let them have any more.
