So there is solidarity between the Vegan festival and the National Climate March to "demand that world leaders take the urgent action we need to prevent the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate". The National Demo in London was one of many demonstrations on climate taking place all around the world on the same day, midway through the UN Climate Talks in Bali. This was part of Nottingham's contribution.
