We were out and about last Saturday 25 September campaigning on Fix the Food Chain with stalls at two fairs on one day.
At the Belsize Green Fair, organised by Transition Belsize, we were surrounded by locally-grown fresh fruit & veg stalls, farmyard animals in the street, and greenhouse-making from old plastic bottles (see photos here). The Festival of Life in Holborn attracted people from all across the country to find out about creating a healthy future, including nutrition, yoga and conscious partying, so we got quite a varied audience for our campaigning. Joe even did a spot of cow-mask-modelling, as you can see in the photo!
We got over 100 postcards signed in total to send to MPs to ask them to support a Sustainable Livestock Bill, which is being read in Parliament on November 12. Hopefully we will get lots more MPs on board as a result! We also got lots of interest in our upcoming Vegan banquet on Sunday 10 October. Thanks to everyone who came along and helped to make our stalls such a success!
We’re off to another green fair this week, at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Bloomsbury, 12-2pm on Wednesday 6 October. If you’re free to help out please get in touch!
