Save our forests: sign the petition

From 38degrees.org.uk:


“The government is planning a massive sell off of our national forests. They could be auctioned and fenced off, run down, logged or turned into golf courses and holiday villages.


We can’t let that happen. We need to stop these plans. National treasures like the The Forest of Dean, Sherwood Forest and The New Forest could be sold off. Once they are gone, they will be lost forever.


A huge petition will force the government to rethink its plans. If we can prove how strongly the public are against this, they will have to back down.”


You can sign the petition at 38degrees.org.uk or at woodlandtrust.org.uk

    sadly, as a foreigner i cannot take part in this – but hopefully, many brits will do. forests like those are supposed to be owned by citizens, not private investors.

    The forests belong to all of us. We must not let them sell off what does not belong to them. They are literally our life-line.

    I’m a member of polish TOZ (something like RSPCA in UK) and I will ALWAYS be against all bastards, who would do about anything just for their bigger profit. BTW, even if you’ re not british, you can still sign petition on the second site (woodlandtrust.org.uk) – no postal code required, just email…

    These forests belong to the public, lets keep it that way!
    Best way to do that though is stop watching tv and signing petitions and go and use our wonderful countryside.

    It is sad that we need to be a UK resident to sign the first one, I mean this is still a part of our planet, isn’t it? But I signed the second one. Politicians and corporations don’t realise the importance of the environment and they don’t see it as an international matter. They only think it is a national product they can sell and destroy, which in my opinion is a crime. If murder is punished, why are those companies paid to kill? It’s true, if you destroy the environment, you mess up the ecosystem, so you kill plants right, but also a whole lot of animals, and yes, in a couple of years, it’s gonna make humans sick as well.
    And all of that for what? Money. Yeah, you know those fictional numbers you have in an account, that allow you to think you’re more important than someone else…

    It would be a crying shame for our woodlands and forests to be lost, the risk of them falling into the hands of private developers is too great… Before we’ve had chance to blink they’ll be ripped down and build upon. These area’s should be kept for the public’s benefit, for the use and enjoyment of all. It would be yet another way that our government are letting us down and it is simply despicable.

    I’m from NY & think its a bloody outrage..
    So the powers to be want to evict Robin Hood & his Merry Men along with the wildlife..for what ? (Money) . ” for the love of money is the root of all evil” I apologize if misquoted. I see Britain losing its heart & soul.. diminishing as a society & selling out their own culture & old growth forests for $$. Moral bankruptcy brings down societies & empires…
    Sorry, I tried to participate in the petition but had problems with first website.
    I grew up in Queens, an outer borough of NYC within walking distance of a city park. Now I live in the suburbs w/ a nearby nature preserve, and ironically it’s NYC that has more bio-diversity than the suburbs and rural areas of upstate NY. In NYC bio-diversity thrives in its parks, wetlands, forests yea they got that , too! Sorry, this is so long. I will try out the second website.

    STOP TAKING CONTROL OF ALL THE LAND YOU BUREAUCRATS. YOU CAN’T TAKE AWAY WHAT MOTHER NATURE GAVE TO ALL. IF YOU WANT TREES THEN TRY PLANTING SOME IN THE CITIES THAT DON’T HAVE THEM. GREEN IS A HEALING COLOUR GET IT. NEXT YOU WILL CHARGING RENT FOR THE ANIMALS THAT LIVE THERE, MAKING THEM PAY IN NUTS AND BERRIES.

    HOW VERY DARE YOU.

    Enough is enough!

    After this unprecedented desaster we’re completely fed up with this zombie-economics’ (Paul Krugman) preaching of privatization of common property and natural ressources, selling out the wealth of the nations, plundering and destroying the planet, making more & more poorer & poorer, killing the poorest, and all that for the sake of some petty cherries on the cake!

    We need trees more than they need us. Trees existed long before we came along. We could not survive without them.
    I honor the beautiful sacred trees. Thank you trees. We love you trees. Please forgive us trees. We love you mother earth. Thank you for your abundant beauty of your forests, mountains, streams. Thank you for the abundant wildlife. Help teach us to live in harmony with the plants and animals and to understand that we need trees more than they need us. The movie Avatar mirrors what is happening all over the planet. It’s not just in Britain, it’s also happening in the ancient rainforests and in America. Help save the sacred trees and the pure spirits of Pandora.

    I can’t believe the Government thinks it ok to even consider this. (Then again, when I look around at what else it is proposing……!!!!! )
    Protect these precious natural resources. Leave our national forests alone!

    The Forests of Britain are our heritage. We must save them for the future of our children.
    This government is intent on bringing this country to its knees. I truly believe the right to room would soon disappear under the shadow of the faceless owners.
    How arrogant for them to think they have the right to sell something that belongs to all of us!!

    It’s not only an environmental issue, but the bigger picture is about our children and future generations who will continue our nation’s natural treasures.

    hi! speaking of which, have you seen the Zeitgeist documentary? It’s simply mind-boggling, but oh so accurate, given the current socio-economic context. Personally, it has practically made me reconsider my existence, my goals, my prospective career. It’s so way beyond us and I’m really glad that public figures like you try to raise awareness, through your beautiful musique and the intense experiences it triggers!

    Remember when Craft bought Cadburys and the Govenment promised to keep the jobs in the uk. now its all made in Poland, so much for Government promises. the same will happen with the forests, promises that will not be kept !!! and they seem to forget ITS NOT THEIRS TO SELL !!!!! Whats next, our public Parks !

    As a cyclist in my teenage years 60 years ago, I loved the countryside surrounded by woodland. Will the young people in the future have the same freedom? We must save the woodlands and our National Parks and saveguard our childrens heritage, Kielder Forest is the biggest in Europe and it is preposterous that we should even consider selling it off.

    When the countyside was opened once again just after the war that ended in 1945, and footpaths and byways made accessable by statute, and the Forestry Commission was established to give the forests protection for the benefit of the people it was a breath of fresh air after the restrictions of the Second World War. If you like, it was a ‘thank you’ gift from the Government to the people, and immediately found a raport, as many thousands flocked into the countryside on bicycles, as hikers, ramblers and just happy walkers on the happy byways, savouring perhaps for the first time, the joy of fresh air and the open countryside. I was one of those that joined the Youth Hostels Association that brought together people from all walks of life, with one thing in common, love of the countryside. At all costs this legacy must be saved. Our common land was stolen from us in the past, it must not happen again. The forests gives the planet oxygen. It protects our wild life. It is natures garden. It must not be sold to the highest bidder, perhaps in the hands of a foreinger. It is our land and we earned it. Please sign the petition before it is too late.
