>Our beautiful countryside is under threat.
>Government cuts are forcing huge land sell-offs
>in the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. 
>People-powered campaigning created our national
>parks over 50 years ago.  And it can save
>them now. A huge public backlash could stop
>further cuts and force the government to protect our national parks.
>Can you sign the petition calling on David Cameron to save our national parks?
>Please save our National Parks. Stop cutting
>their funding and make sure National Park
>Authorities have enough money to protect our
>most iconic landscapes for future generations.
>National parks are looked after by National Park
>Authorities (NPAs) who are funded by central
>government. Theyre supposed to act as
>custodians of these precious places - for
>people, wildlife and future generations.  But
>after rounds of cuts NPAs are slashing jobs, and
>looking for other ways to balance the books. 
>In the Lake District seven iconic beauty spots
>are already up for sale. Stickle Tarn, described
>as "iconic, simply majestic" - £20,000.
>Baneriggs Wood, an exceptional mature deciduous
>woodland complete with red squirrels and rare
>birds - £110,000.  In the Yorkshire Dales
>eight properties are now earmarked for disposal 
>David Cameron and his government hold the purse
>strings. It's their decisions that are forcing
>our national treasures onto the market. Sign the
>petition here to protect our national parks:
>Back in 2011, the government tried to privatise
>another set of beauty spots - the public
>woodlands owned by the Forestry Commission. 38
>Degrees members helped block those sales.  We
>know the true value of preserving Englands wild
>spaces, and why it matters to keep them in
>public hands. So let's come together again to save our National Parks.
>Thanks for being involved,
>Maddy, Megan, India and the 38 Degrees team
>PS: It'll take a huge petition to get the
>government to stop cutting funding to our
>national parks. So once you've signed, please
>forward this email to all your friends and
>family, and ask them to sign the save our
>national parks petition by clicking here:

"Capitalism is institutionalised bribery."
"The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic
poison which alienates the possessor from the community" Carl Jung
Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered
that shall not be revealed; and nothing hid that
shall not be made known. What I tell you in
darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye
hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27
Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
