Over half a million of us should feel very proud of what we’ve achieved together. Let’s keep watching but also celebrate what we’ve done!
We’ll update this blog with more news as it comes out but here are some quick highlights of the campaign:
Update 1: Here are a few more news reports:
Update 2: We were far from the only group working to stop the forest sell-off. It was achieved by so many of us working together.
Fantastic local groups, up and down the country, campaigned day and night to get these proposals scrapped.
Here are a few tweets about the campaign:
Apparent cancellation of forest sell-off is an incredible victory for everyone who campaigned with @38_degrees – one of most exciting groups
To everyone who did their bit (however small) and made their voice heard (however quiet it seemed), congratulations. We won #saveourforests
We’ve saved our forests! The government has just announced that they’re going to scrap the forest sell-off. >Well done @38_degrees & signers
World forestry day due next month, let’s all go for a national walk in the woods you fought hard to protect #SaveOurForests
@38_degrees THANK-YOU for giving us a voice.
Thanks to everyone for the congratulations. WITHOUT YOU today’s announcement wouldn’t have happened. TOGETHER we did this #SaveOurForests
