An amazing ending to the tour of the East Midlands over the last few weekends.
Chesterfield, Leicester, Derby, Lincoln and then Nottingham!!
Over hundred rebels and supporters joined a very sunny march through the city centre – to bring a colourful, entertaining and noisy parade…. with a serious message.
We are in the middle of the sixth mass-extinction on this planet – and human activity is the driver of this situation.
Of all the mammals of the world
4% of wild animals
36% are human
and a massive 60% are farmed animals who exist just to feed us!
Why is nature out of balance?
Pollution, overfishing, pesticides, erosion of soil, destruction of wetland/peatlands, factory farming, deforestation and fossil fuel driven climate change.
Why do we need nature?
Insects pollinate the food we eat.
Nature is complex, take one species away, it impacts many others.
Nature recycles nutrients, essential for life to flourish.
It is literally our life-support system.
