PLEASE HELP THE STARVING PIGEONS
SAT 25th NOV - THE NORTH TERRACE, TRAFALGAR SQUARE, LONDON
(pedestrianised area in front of the national gallery)
The pigeons of Trafalgar Square are semi-domesticated birds
who have been fed for generations. Ken Livingstone and the
London Assembly decided to rid the square of pigeons for
commercial gain. Unlike famous public squares the world
over, these pigeons are not allowed to be a big tourist
attraction, instead, the appearance of cafe's has meant the
pigeons are labelled a public health and safety risk, when
in fact they are no such threat.
Instead the public are banned from feeding in the square and
are often treated to the sight of pigeons being ripped apart
by a bird of prey. All this at taxpayers expense of who are
shelling out about £90 per pigeon to indulge Kens hatred of
these innocent birds.
Westminster Council are planning to extend this ban to the
North Terrace, where the birds are fed on a daily basis, at
PLEASE SUPPORT THESE HARMLESS AND AMAZING CREATURES.
Pigeons can navigate over hundreds of miles, both sexes feed
their babies with their own milk, they are highly
intelligent and adaptable and were awarded the Victoria
Cross for their bravery, saving human lives in the first
World War. How do we repay them?! We starve them!
Bird specialists have said this flock can only be humanely
reduced over a very long period, otherwise they will starve.
Please come to Trafalgar Square on Sat 25th Nov to feed the
pigeons and to show the Mayor that a feeding ban on the
North Terrace is not only unjust but cruel. These striking
birds will really lift your spirits -
Meet outside Charing Cross Railway Station at 1pm.
Please bring mixed corn or anything else the pigeons will
