General public urged to join Anti-Grand National protest March 21st, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments General public urged to join Anti-Grand National protest The Merseyside based Fight Against Animal Cruelty in Europe (FAACE) asks the general public to attend this year’s Anti-Grand National protest. Despite the death of the charity’s co-founder Tony Moore in December 2013 a demo will take place just outside the Aintree train station on the 5th April from 10.30 until about 2.30 pm. The event will be a co-operation with Animal Aid and various Merseyside-based groups and animal lovers. “After the death of four horses in this year’s Cheltenham race it is important to protest against the Grand National, which is no less dangerous to the horses. Tony will be missed at Aintree, but our posters and leaflets will be available to anyone who wants to come and join us”, says Matilda, Tony’s partner. “Tony was very passionate about horses and would have wanted the fight against horse racing to carry on. He was convinced that despite the recent changes to the race course it was still not safe for the horses. If you love horses, please come to the demo. Be an advocate for the poor horses.” FAACE continues to operate, but is in the process of being restructured and looking for a new head office.
