Students, young people, workers, parents and professionals all over the world will strike from school or the workplace in order to demand action on the climate catastrophe on Friday 29th November.
The global strike for action on climate change will be directly before the UN climate talks, now moved to Madrid from Chile. It will also be just before the UK general election on 12 December. Protestors see this as an important opportunity to stand with young people who have called for urgent action on climate change, yet the majority of the youth strikers will be unable to vote in the coming election.
Local protestors will be marching from Menai Bridge to Bangor at 11:00am and then hosting a Climate Question Time event in Pontio theatre from 1pm-3pm.
Protestors who can’t get to Menai Bridge for the start of the march you can join along the way. They will be leaving Menai Bridge Library at 11am and will pass the following locations: Bangor Normal Site 11:45am, Coleg Menai 12:00pm, Bangor Train Station 12:15pm, Bangor Town Centre 12:30pm and finish at Pontio for 12:45pm.
Following the march, the Question Time event is your chance to ask local leaders of our community about the climate emergency and what their plans are.
A discussion will also be held on how the local community and youth can be part of the solutions to the challenges of climate change. This will include a campaign launch by local pupils for schools to declare a climate emergency.
