REVIVE, the coalition for grouse moor reform, held a fringe event at the Scottish Labour conference in Glasgow yesterday.
The REVIVE coalition comprises five organisations (League Against Cruel Sports, OneKind, Common Weal, Friends of the Earth and Raptor Persecution UK), employing Max Wiszniewski as its Campaigns Manager.
Colin Smyth MSP, Scottish Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy, Transport and Rural Affairs and a long-time supporter of REVIVE hosted the fringe event.

It’s good to be able to return to these in-person events post-Covid and have face-to-face conversations with policy makers, especially as the Scottish Government gears up to finally introducing a licensing scheme to regulate grouse moor management after decades of criminal and environmental abuse by the game-shooting industry.
