League statement

I regret to announce that Eduardo Gonçalves is stepping down as CEO of the League Against Cruel Sports. Eduardo was diagnosed with a serious condition last year, and has been courageously battling his illness with the determination and good humour we have come to expect of him.

This is the same determination that we saw him put into all his work, helping to see off multiple attempts to repeal the hunting ban and to force the government to abandon plans to hold a vote to bring back this archaic sport topping the list. He has worked tirelessly to fight the powerful interests of those who wish to persecute animals. Eduardo has been a loud and compassionate voice for animals, and we expect him to remain so in the future. We wish him and his family well.”
