Around 3,000 environmentally conscious, caring people marched through the streets of central London as a half protest, half performance demonstration.
They were coming out against oil companies in the Arctic and they were led by a giant mechanical polar bear!!
The giant beast was the size of a double decker bus and required 15 puppeteers and 20 volunteers to walk it down Lambeth Palace Road towards Shell headquarters.
The giant bear led protesters on a call to ban oil and gas drilling in the Arctic as this would affect the habitat of polar bears and could affect the entire environment!
We're pretty sure if you want to send a message and get noticed, a giant, 3-ton bear is certainly a good way to do it! Ha!
Hopefully the gas companies got the message: "Stop messing up the Arctic or we'll use our giant bear to eat your office buildings!"
Or something along those lines. LOLz!
