Over 70 Campaigners Attend the Reclaim Our Moors Walk on the Moscar Estate
More than 70 campaigners attended the Reclaim Our Moors protest walk from Redmires Reservoir near Sheffield on Sunday 13th August. The walk took a path through the notorious Moscar Estate, and the crowd heard from speakers including author Bob Berzins, whose book – Snared – chronicles the brutal reality of wildlife crime on grouse shooting estates.
This annual walk began five years ago in response to the ongoing pollution, environmental damage and wildlife persecution in the upland areas, according to one of the campaigners, Clive Swinsco. The protest walk is supported by Unite The Union, the local Labour and Green parties, and campaigning groups including Moorland Monitors and Greenpeace.
