Representatives of Waltham Forest and Redbridge Green Party joined with thousands of other people at a wildlife protection protest.
Resident Mark Dawes marched though central London to Downing Street, to call on the Government to bring an immediate end to badger culling.
Protestors then listened to speakers including Natalie Bennett, former leader of the Green Party, and Chris Packham of the BBC.
“We need to protect British wildlife from cruel hunting, culling and shooting before it is too late and species become extinct,” Mr Dawes told the Recorder.
“It is immoral to kill living, sentient beings for fun and such activities should be banned forever.”
A spokeswoman from Waltham Forest and Redbridge Green Party said that British wildlife is under threat from government policies which are “cruel, costly and ineffective”.
“The vast majority of the British public realise that to hunt and kill living creatures is cruel and barbaric and has no place in a civilised society,” she said.
