East of England MEP takes part in anti-whaling march
East of England MEP John Flack is pictured with an anti-whaling placard before a march through central London to protest against Japan’s decision to resume commercial whaling.
The protest, which took place over the weekend, was Mr Flack’s first march.
Mr Flack, 62, addressed marchers on Saturday at noon in Cavendish Square before they set off for the Japanese Embassy.
The Conservative politician said: “I have never marched before but there is a first time for everything-and this despicable action by the Japanese government has left me furious. I’ve even made my first placard with the help of my wife.”
Mr Flack is the vice president of the European Parliament’s cross-party Intergroup on Animal Welfare.
