Last Wednesday, 26 June, BBOWT joined a coalition of constituents, environmental organisations and religious groups at the Time Is Now Mass Lobby in Westminster.
Over 12,000 people from across the UK united to tell MPs that we need them to act NOW to end our contribution to climate change and restore our natural environment.
It was a fantastic day that saw over 300 MPs lobbied - that’s nearly half of Parliament! See if your MP was there.
After team BBOWT arrived in Westminster, a conspicuous crowd of yellow t-shirts adorned with our enormous flag, we walked the length of the lobby line which stretched from the Houses of Parliament, across Lambeth bridge and along the River Thames.
Arranged by constituency, people were playing guitars, singing and chatting excitedly as they waited for their MPs.
As the clock struck 2pm the lobby line became alive with alarm bells and cheering as we told Parliament, “The Time Is NOW”!
