THOUSANDS of animal rights demonstrators failed to have an impact during a demo in London.
Vegan activists marched to the Houses of Parliament in a bid to stop animal exploitation, but were largely ignored.
The event was organised by the Surge animal rights group.
But pedestrians and office workers carried on as normal with no problems.
One said: “They do this sort of thing so frequently I hardly notice them anymore.”
Protesters also stopped outside fur, meat and fish businesses shouting vegan slogans.
Many dressed up as different creatures to make their point, including cats, rabbits and foxes.
The Surge spokesperson said: “ The future is vegan, but we must take to the streets and continue to speak out on behalf of the animals.”
Other similar demonstrations took place in several American cities including New York and Los Angeles.
