London GMFER Silent Protest for Elephants & Rhinos

On October 7th 2017 hundreds of people stood in Parliament Square, London. 30 minutes silence was observed along with the sound of an African drum beat. The previous day plans were unveiled by the Government for a total UK ivory ban. We need to keep the pressure up to make sure that the plans become law.
