      Is it just me who finds it weird how the elephants have lots of support and yet other animals have so little, and weird how some ppl who care about certain species fail to make the connection and change their diet and lifestyle? One of my AR friends from facebook told me she was in conversation with someone on the demo who was a meat-eater and this woman was even shocked that she went on anti-slaughter demos!

      Why would anyone standing up for elephants be "shocked" that someone there would be against slaughtering other animals for food??? It just made me cross, that some ppl on demos for elephants and rhinos (and possibly some of the whales and dolphins crowd too) are stubbornly for just their one chosen species and do not want to learn about going vegan!

      Also I do not know about Nicky Campbell, I do not think he is veggie (certainly not vegan) is he? I do know that Zac Goldsmith was there and he is pro-hunting and supports the deer cull!
      I am not against single issue campaigns, so long as the moral baseline is clear that ppl supporting a campaign for animals should be aiming to go vegan even if they are not vegan already.. but this value is not even on their radar on elephants demos is it?

    Hi Lesley, Marshals will remain at Forum Magnum Square until 11.20am so you can walk with them if you arrive later, or alternatively meet the majority of the walkers at Parliament Square who will arrive any time after 11.30am.

    The route is fairly straight forward - more info on the route is at

    What time do you move off from Forum Magnum Square? We might as well try to spell the meeting point correctly for the benefit of looking it up on google maps!!
    I plan on coming but will be late, I may be not able to get there until about 11.15 by my reckoning. Is it a straightforward route you're taking over Westminster Bridge so latecomers can catch up easily?

    Hi carol, we currently have 773 Facebook attendees and are spreading the word amongst other NGO's so yes, we hope to have hundreds on the day to make a bigger stand for elephants!
