The Countryside Alliance is launching a revolutionary piece of tech for people to report evidence of online abuse to.
The Countryside Alliance strongly condemns online bullying of any kind and has long campaigned to raise awareness of the issue. The Alliance has become increasingly concerned over the last couple of years about the rise of online abuse against the country sports community.
To identify the true extent of online bullying of rural communities we launched a survey during the summer to ask our members and supporters about their experiences. Over 500 people responded with the results showing that 62% had experienced online bullying or harassment for supporting country sports. It also showed that the online bullying of rural communities who support country sports continues to grow year on year and has become more aggressive and antagonistic. The results of this survey can be found here.
Due to the shocking results the Alliance has decided launch a dedicated portal where those who receive online abuse for supporting country sports can send their evidence to help support our campaign. If you have received online abuse please fill in the form below, attaching any evidence you may have (e.g. screen shots of abuse on social media). The information provided will help us with our campaign when talking to Parliamentarian and to make sure that social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter do more to stop the abuse of rural communities.
