Youth climate change protests across Britain – as it happened

Youth climate change protests across Britain – as it happenedWe have inherited a system which fuels the climate crisis that is threatening our future. We have done little to contribute to climate change, and yet we are going to suffer the consequences of it. Equally, the poorest children on Earth are nowadays suffering the worst impacts of a climate crisis that has been fuelled by the economy of the richest countries.

We demand system change, we demand climate justice.”
