Pot­shots at Chris only show why he’ s right

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – The abu­sive re­ac­tion which Chris Pack­ham has suf­fered for his en­vi­ron­men­tal cam­paign­ing and his chal­lenge to the shoot­ing of wild birds should come as no sur­prise (P&J, Oc­to­ber 7). This is the men­tal­ity one would ex­pect of those who take plea­sure in killing for “sport”.

It puts me in mind of a quote of­ten mis­at­tributed to Gandhi, but which sum­marises Gandhi’s phi­los­o­phy of non-vi­o­lent protest: “First they ig­nore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you and then you win.” Keep cam­paign­ing, Chris, you have reached stage three.
