Support Mike Hosking's Right To Express An Opinion

Many people don't like Mike Hosking or many of his opinions. The fact is however, that he's been given the right to say what he thinks on nationwide radio and TV. Many people have fought tooth and nail (and in some cases, lost their lives) for us to have a society where we're free to express those opinions. We the undersigned, do not believe Mr Hosking should be removed from his role or roles in broadcasting, simply because he is expressing an opinion.

Modern documentaries (on television) learn us that wild animals have a hard time in captivity, also in the usual zoos, and even worse for big predators like lions, bears, orca’s and also dolphins. They can’t live according to their natural instincts, hunting, pr
