Pressure builds to save green laws

Nearly 40,000 of us have now signed the petition against government plans to scrap key protections for wildlife, the environment and the countryside.

Pressure on the government is building fast: It’s only two weeks since the Guardian newspaper first revealed this new threat to wildlife and the environment. As well as our big people-powered petition, more and more respected organisations are speaking out– including the RSPB, Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace.

Let’s keep the pressure building. Can you help get the petition to 50,000 this weekend by asking your friends to sign?
