The route will be:

Cavendish Square, Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, around Trafalgar Square, down Whitehall to arrive opposite Downing street.

There are six charities involved: LionAid, Born Free Foundation, IFAW, Four Paws, One Protest and the Save Me Trust.

The March is calling for an END TO LION TROPHY IMPORTS INTO THE UK.

There will be a delegation, representing the three charities, going into Downing Street to deliver a letter to the Prime Minister.

With the recent attention focused back on trophy hunting this week, more than ever we need a big turnout to show what the people of the UK think about trophy hunting.

Adam Sugalski of ONE PROTEST has produced this fantastic video for us to promote the March and designed a range of beautiful posters which can be seen below. Thank you Adam x ...

POSTERS

Adam designed a whole range of posters which are available as downloads so that EVERYONE can easily use them to spread the word about the MARCH TO STOP LION TROPHY HUNTING.

If you are in the UK and attending the March then please download the graphics here and print out the posters to hold aloft as we march through London.

Plus everyone, wherever in the world you are, can use the links to these posters to spread the word on social media.

This is the letter that will be delivered to No 10 Downing Street at 3pm April 30th.

It's a sad and alarming article. Campaigns and events just like this one will bring much needed awareness and attention, It's time we put this to an end and save our wildlife and protect the animals that are being exploited all over the world particularly in the United States.
If I lived closer then Toronto Canada I would be there in a heart beat!
Thank you to all who work endlessly for this most important cause and all who will be joining the March to Stop Lion Trophy Hunting.

Please make your steps as loud and thunderous as the lions your protecting.
