About the book:

This book details the rich history of the Hunt Saboteurs Association from its inception in 1963, through the increasingly violent days of the late 1980s and early 1990s, all the way up to the present day after the introduction of the Hunting Act. It celebrates the tireless efforts of those who took (and still continue to take) direct action to prevent the horrific deaths of animals at the hands of hunters.

About the Hunt Saboteurs Association:

The Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA) was formed in the winter of 1963 and first went into action in South Devon on Boxing Day.

Hunting with hounds was supposed to have been banned in England & Wales in February 2005, and in Scotland, several years earlier. However, now the fuss and media attention has died down, most hunts are carrying on as they did before. The police have never known much about hunting other than how to try to protect it, so we never had much faith in them changing sides.

Hunts around the country are arrogantly continuing their slaughter in the name of sport, in the hope or knowledge that the people in power donít really care. One of our greatest weapons is now the video camera Ė enough instances of hunts breaking the law caught on camera and hopefully not even the blinkered politicians will be able to ignore it. MiniDV camcorders cost as little as £250 and can be adapted to take a covert pinhole camera so no-one at the hunt need even know you are filming. Read more at The Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA).
