After yesterday’s League Against Cruel Sports’ Annual General Meeting in London, three veteran animal advocates get together for a quick drink in a nearby pub. They are Chris Williamson, Dave Wetton and me. Between us we reckon we have more than 100 years of animal rights and social justice advocacy but resolved to keep going until we pop our clogs. Chris was recently elected Labour MP for Derby North, having been a councilor in 1991 and subsequently Leader of the Labour Group on Derby City Council. Chris continues to serve on the board of trustees of the LACS and has done so for many years, including as chair. Dave joined the Hunt Saboteurs Association in 1964 and severed as its secretary from 1968 until about 10 years ago. He’s still involved with HSA, including researching a book on the organization’s history to be published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of its founding in 2013.
