Last Saturday, members of our campaigns group were out in Birmingham City Centre on a Food Chain Parade to end our Food Chain fortnight of action.

As you can see from the picture below we were drawing people’s attention to the issues surrounding factoring farming in this country leading to deforestation of some of the world’s most valuable pristine habitat in South America. Arrows go from the animals to the bags of soy feed which they eat to the man with the chainsaw who cuts down the trees to grow the crops.

The parade went from in front of Tesco on New Street, up to Victoria Square, along Colmore Row, down Church Street, across to Ludgate Hill, up to St Pauls Square, along Brook Street, along Graham Street up Frederick St and along Warstone Lane where we finished at the 24 carrot farmers market in the Jewellery quarter.

Shaking our maracas we made our way along the route giving out badges and stickers to people along the way and singing our own version of “Old MacDonald Had A Farm”.

It was a really fun event. Thanks to everyone who helped make the props and who joined in on the day. Let’s hope that all the MPs get behind this now and the bill goes through parliament to make our food planet-friendly.
