On October 7th 2017 hundreds of people stood in Parliament Square, London. Thirty 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, but protesters decided to still push ahead with the protest in order to keep the pressure up to make sure that the plans become law.
