Be part of history in London! Be part of the biggest ever mobilisation of vegetarians and vegans on environmental grounds!! Veg*nism is the solution to many of the catastrophes facing the planet - it`s time to tell the world!!
Join the march to:
Upto 50,000 environmentalists are expected to join the National Climate March (also known as The Wave) on Sat 5th December 2009 to "demand that our government takes urgent and radical action to deal with the climate crisis". This will be the UK`s biggest ever environmental march aimed at putting maximum pressure on world leaders 2 days before the start of the critical Copenhagen Climate Talks.
The environmental marchers will make several specific demands of the government including:
Veggies & vegans should be there in our 1,000`s, to demand that world leaders recognise that a massive proportion of climate change is caused by livestock farming and the production of meat/dairy products. World leaders must stop supporting the animal farming/food production industries responsible for this devastation and begin to scale them down before it`s too late, or ultimately, we`ll all pay the price!!
Some of the environmental marchers will already be veggie/vegan, but the majority will not. The chances are, many of these people will be unaware of the full extent to which animal agriculture is responsible for climate change. This event represents a fantastic opportunity to inform many thousands of environmentally conscious people of the devastating impact that meat/dairy production has on the planet. The world`s media will be there, so there is a very real chance that our message will be heard by millions more people. Please join the march with banners/placards/leaflets etc, and urge the marchers and general public alike, to change their diet for the sake of the planet, people and wildlife!!
Assemble 12 noon at Speakers Corner, Hyde ParkPLEASE NOTE: A rally will take place at Speakers Corners which is a short distance from Grosvenor Square, from where the march is expected to set off at 1.15pm.
