Action for Elephants UK will be holding a peaceful demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy in London on 25 January 2014. This demonstration will be conducted in a peaceful and respectful way towards China.
China is the world’s main consumer of ivory, with demand soaring in the last decade as more and more Chinese have acquired the means to buy it. The result of this escalating demand is a huge rise in poaching elephants for their tusks, to the point where the killing has reached unprecedented levels and threatens to wipe out elephants forever.
China have the ability and power to ban the trade in ivory, causing the demand for ivory to decline, giving elephants a fighting chance to recover in their numbers.
This event will be to welcome positive steps that China have taken in recent weeks and ask them to do more. To be world leaders in banning ivory and saving elephants.
Please join us on January 25th to add your voice at this event. We will provide placards that you can download and use on the day.
