We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to Not allow horse racing on London Streets. More details
We like to brag we are an animal loving nation but we allow numerous race horses to be killed after injury once the cost of healing them has gone beyond the profit margin of the owners. Horses are sentient beings, not a commodity to be dispatched when injured for the purpose of betting and winning cups. We once felt women were a commodity as were black slaves. We (humans) pushed the native peoples of America, Australia etc off their lands. Hunted wildlife to the point of extinction. I would hope in the enlightenment of this century we (humans) would abhor the use and abuse of any sentient being and begin a new course of co existence on this planet.
This may be a long winded way of saying that horses should not be allowed to race on the streets of London but I wanted you to understand my viewpoint and the viewpoint of a growing number of people around the world.
Please interceded and stop this horrid request.
