MIDDLESBROUGH PREPARES FOR YOUTH CLIMATE STRIKE

Hundreds of students are expected to march through Middlesbrough as part of climate change protest.

The protest is led by the Climate Strike 4 Youth movement, but will be supported by Extinction Rebellion Middlesbrough.

Andy Preston, Mayor of Middlesbrough, is expected to turn up to greet participants at the start of the day.

The town is joining in with a global strike happening on the same day, to protest the lack of action towards climate and environment policy.

Protestors can expect music, songs, and open mic speeches that welcome anyone to take the stage.

If you want to get involved, the march will start at 11am in Centre Square, Middlesbrough on November 29.

Before beginning the protest, participants will ‘centre themselves’ with the use of songs, and mutual conversations.

Everyone is welcome, and more information can be found here.
