A big thanks to the 3570 plus people who signed the petition started by Pete Williamson "Ban Halal Food Festival from taking place at London Excel".
An astonishing number of people in just a few days and in itself a great achievement, showing what we can do when we are well organised and determined.
Pete says: "Unfortunately we have not been able to stop the repulsive Halal Food Festival. What we have achieved is to heighten awareness of this wicked practice that is the Halal method of slaughtering animals. People from all over the world, as members of the British public, have signed the petition and left hundreds of comments. In fact I have decided to leave the petition open, if for no other reason than to display and archive all the wonderful comments."
