A BRIEF BACKGROUND ON THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST ANIMAL KEEPERS
WHICH INCLUDES FISHKEEPING AND IS OF CONCERN TO US ALL

The 2004 RSPCA Policy Document states that animals that are kept in cages or Aquariums are generally unsuitable as companion animals (pets).
Animal Aid are against the breeding of any animals including fish as pets.
Animal Aid are currently mounting campaigns against the keeping of birds and reptiles.
Animal Aid have started a campaign against the keeping of tropical and coldwater fish in aquariums or ponds, starting with the public aquaria
.Animal Aid are in fact opposed to the keeping of any animals including fish as pets.
Animal Aid and the RSPCA want all animal and fish Shows banned.
THE RSPCA RULING COUNCIL WHO MAKE RSPCA POLICIES IS DOMINATED BY A MAJORITY OF 18 ANIMAL AID SUPPORTERS/EXTREMISTS OUT OF A COUNCIL OF 26 AND SO EFFECTIVELY NOW CONTROL THE RSPCA. THE RSPCA IS NO LONGER THE SAME ORGANISATION THAT HAS HAD THE LOYAL SUPPORT OF THE MAJORITY OF THE BRITISH PUBLIC FOR SO MANY YEARS. THE RULING COUNCIL HAVE TURNED IT INTO AN ANTI ANIMAL KEEPING POLITICAL ORGANISATION.
The RSPCA Inspectorate continue, (with some exceptions) to do a good job for animal welfare but are hampered by the Ruling Council's refusal to allow any formal co-operation between the Inspectorate and animal keeping societies to improve animal welfare where necessary.
One example of the Ruling Council's political actions was their rejection of the Memorandum of Understanding which was proposed and composed by the Inspectorate with the sole purpose of helping the RSPCA inspectors to deal more effectively with animal welfare issues through co-operation with hobbyists.
The Ruling Council controls the expenditure of the RSPCA and while the extremists have controlled it,
£16,000,000 has been spent on new headquarters in Horsham, the number of inspectors has been reduced as have the number of rescue centres and animal treatment centres.
The telephones are now manned by non-RSPCA personnel and in many cases the RSPCA will no longer come out to help injured wildlife.
Meanwhile, the Ruling Council is spending freely on campaigns against animal keeping.
To those who read this message and think we are being alarmist, let us assure you that all the above statements are factual. Having read the RSPCA's 2004 Policy Document, and with some of us having met with the RSPCA at senior levels, been present at various meetings with official bodies and studied the statements posted by Animal Aid and other extremist groups on their websites, the above are the only conclusions that can be reached.
If you really love your animals and believe that your children/grandchildren should be allowed to continue having pets, then encourage anyone you know to join Clubs and persuade the Club to fully support Federation of Companion Animal Societies (FOCAS).
BE PREPARED TO WRITE TO YOUR LOCAL MP.
UNLESS WE MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD OUR HOBBY WILL DISAPPEAR.

We need to present ourselves as a large fish keeping fraternity to effectively get our views heard by government.
As the vast majority of meetings are held in Central London it falls on the FBAS to supply the people to attend these. This we are willing to do. We have joined with many of the other animal-keeping organisations and together with them have put money into forming FOCAS.
Most Societies have members residing in areas that cover more than one Parliamentary Constituency; between us that is a lot of MPs. We call on you to send a letter to your MP. We have composed a standard letter
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS COPY THIS TO YOUR MP
adding your name and address and post it to the House of Commons.
PLEASE HELP US TO SAVE OUR HOBBY
