Merry meet to all my brothers and sisters.
I CALL TO ALL UK MEMBERS FOR YOUR URGENT ASSISTANCE.
Mother Earth needs our protection from humanity and your assistance is needed now.
The Earth is also home to the living beings of the trees and plants who provide for us.
THE UK GOVERNMENT PLANS TO SELL OUR FORESTS.
That includes national treasures like the The Forest of Dean, Sherwood Forest and The New Forest.
We cannot allow this to happen.
They could be auctioned and fenced off, run down, logged or turned into golf courses and holiday villages.
We need to stop these plans.
A huge petition will force the government to rethink its plans.
If we can prove how strongly the public are against this, they will have to back down.
Please sign the petition in the link below now. (You need to enter a UK postcode to sign).
Our campaign to Save Our Forests hit the headlines this weekend!
First our petition and an opinion poll - paid for by hundreds of 38 Degrees members - were reported on Countryfile, the Today programme and BBC 5 Live breakfast. Then a group including the Archbishop of Canterbury backed our campaign - making the front page of the Sunday Telegraph!
Our pressure is starting to work. If enough of us sign the petition, we can make the government think again.
Please can you help spread the word, and ask your friends to sign the petition too? If enough of us get involved we can to stop these plans - before it's too late and our forests are already being sold, fenced off, run down, cut down or built over.
Please help get the petition past 200,000 signatures this week - forward this e-mail and ask your friends to sign.

Our pressure has got the government worried. They've started a charm offensive, telling us that they love forests too. But right now, despite the warm fuzzy words, David Cameron is pushing through changes to the law. He still wants to make it legal to sell off 100% of our woodlands.
Forests like the Forest of Dean, the New Forest, Bedgebury, Grizedale, Thetford, and Alice Holt are national treasures. Once they’re gone, they are lost forever. If we get enough signatures on the petition, we have a bigger chance of making sure they are protected for wildlife and future generations.

Thanks for being involved.
