Write a letter
You can write a letter to your local or national media - you decide. You can focus on what you saw in your local supermarket or at the street butcher's or express your opinion on the general situation of these poor animals during Christmas time. Always sign with your name as this looks more seriously. You can also write a letter to the supermarket. In this letter you should focus on describing what you saw and express your disappointment with the staff and the management of the store as well as your disgust with these inhumane practices. You can also give an e-mail or regular address if you want to be written back. Writing appeals to politicians is also a good idea, especially when these letters are accompanied with letters to the media. Ask them to support our campaign publicly and encourage to change the country's legislation. Whoever you write your letter to, remember to be polite and stick to facts. If you are familiar with legislation, you can give quotes supporting your argument on law breaking.
