SGA STATEMENT: REVIVE CAMPAIGN SEEKS TO PUT THOUSANDS OF RURAL WORKING FAMILIES ON THE DOLE


Please find below the full statement from The Scottish Gamekeepers Association regarding the launch of the Revive campaign. 


A Spokesman for The Scottish Gamekeepers Association said: “Despite the veneer, the majority of these organisations and individuals have never been interested in ‘reform’. People should not be fooled. This is a wrecking ball campaign by a cohort seeking to ban grouse shooting and to put thousands of Scotland’s rural workers and their families on the dole.
“Over the coming weeks, while government independently reviews grouse shooting, we expect the track record of tactics which has seen members within this group covertly filming land managers undertaking legal activities and spreading misinformation in a bid to get the result they crave.
“Those seeking to use their charitable lobbying influence in Edinburgh to kill off livelihoods should take responsibility for the consequences and provide alternative employment for the lives they will wreck.”
