By standing as one, in unity, we demonstrate to our government and MPs that the majority of people want
positive action taken on nature, the climate and social justice issues.
The protest day includes a diverse programme of engaging speakers, creative performers, stalls, workshops and more.
With a rally, a spectacularly creative accessible, wheelchair and family-friendly, march (bring your costumes, banners and flags)
