2023 is the 60th anniversary of the Hunt Saboteurs Association, the oldest direct action organisation in the world. To celebrate we’ve given away sixty thousand pounds, one thousand to each of our affiliated local groups. We’re able to give such a large sum because the HSA is run entirely by volunteers and all donations received from our generous supporters go directly to support sabs in the field.
As the recently exposed Avon Vale video shows, hunts across the country are routinely flouting the Hunting Act and chasing and killing wildlife. Sabs are the only people who directly intervene to save hunted animals and they’re supported to do so by the Hunt Saboteurs Association.
To celebrate our 60th birthday we’ll be sharing videos from our celebrity supporters throughout the year. The first of which is from actor and animal rights activist Peter Egan who has been a staunch supporter of the HSA for many years.
A spokesperson commented
“We’re incredibly proud of our history and the fact we’ve achieved so much without paid staff but we’re even prouder of the support we’re able to give to sabs as they intervene between the hunters and their quarry. This is a significant sum that we’re giving away to mark our anniversary but over the years we’ve given far more and will continue to do so whilst hunt saboteurs are required.
We thank our generous donors, we thank our celebrity supporters but most importantly we thank the sabs for doing what they do.”
