Whether you can or can’t attend Hen Harrier Eve, and whether you can or can’t attend Hen Harrier Day, you can, if you use social media, add your name to a message that will go around the world at 10am on Hen Harrier Day saying:
Nothing controversial there.
Already, just since Saturday, over 300 people have signed up and they have a ‘social reach’ of a bit under 300,000 people. Last year, by Hen Harrier Day, the social reach was well over 2 million people. Let’s see how high we can get it – please sign up here!
Since this message is completely uncontroversial I would expect support from the following organisations and individuals would be grateful if they could confirm it:

I’ll keep you updated on progress with this list, but I may miss sign-up by the organisations with a smaller social reach and so an email would be appreciated.
And it is possible to join the thunderclap through Facebook and tumblr too.
