The protest was a great success. It was about raising awareness, and showing people what this market could become.

"It's the largest meat market in Europe and has been going for about 800 years", said Hoot. "They used to sell women here and it has evolved with society over time."

"This market could easily switch to selling fruit and vegetables, especially as people start plant-based diets. The protest was about showing people what this market could easily become, even within just a few years."

James Hoot describes himself as a passionate vegan filmmaker and full-time-animal rights activist. He is Director and Producer of Planet Vegan.

Mr. Hoot, who describes himself as a 'vegan activist' and 'slam poet' recently tweeted: 'When talking about ending animal farming, people always talk about 'their' problems with it.

"How it inconveniences them, how it's too extreme for them, etc etc.

"There are animals being murdered and you're telling me that you don't like broccoli. Have some f***ing perspective."

The documentary maker claims to have planted '6,108' trees to offset the emissions from his travels to make the documentary.
