Everyone is welcome to join a march in support of youth Climate Strike action starting 11am on FRIDAY 20th SEPTEMBER.

Young people around the world, inspired by Swedish schoolgirl, Greta Thunberg, are organising a youth climate strike with various activities on Friday 20th September 2019. They have asked for adults to support them.

Burngreave Clean Air Campaign is hosting a march in support of the young people protesting on Friday 20th September. The march will start at Abbeyfield Park at 11.00am and then proceed down to Ellesmere Green arriving at about 11.30am.  From there the march will go to the city centre to meet up with the young people at a rally at Barker’s Pool at 1.00pm.

Graham Jones of the Burngreave Clean Air Campaign says:

“There IS a Climate Emergency and many more people now agree that this is threatening our survival and our world. We cannot ignore it. Fighting climate breakdown means creating a fair and sustainable world that works for all of us.”

All welcome. Please bring banners, placards, and friends and be prepared to make a lot of noise.

Even if you can’t come personally, we would welcome messages of support from local individuals and organisations which we can read out on the day.

Organised by Burngreave Clean Air Campaign.
