Call for action on climate crisis
Extinction Rebellion activists held a silent vigil in Bath city centre to call for more action to be taken on climate change.
Protesters dressed in black demonstrated outside the Guildhall last Friday as part of a number of co-ordinated events that took place across the world to mark Global Climate Action Day.
The activists place a banner reading “Build Back Better, Build Back Green” on railings outside the historic buildingin the city centre.
It is the latest in a series of demonstrations to take place in Bath and across the county in recent times as the group calls for governments to act in the fight against global warning.
Ros Pears, of Extinction Rebellion in Bath, said: “We are keeping the flame of climate activism burning on the street on behalf of all who care. We are all living through difficult times in this pandemic, but it is also crucially important not to forget we are in a climate and ecological emergency.”
Fellow Extinction Rebellion member Stephanie Laslett added: “It’s vital the climate crisis isn’t forgotten.
“We are about to trigger irreversible chain reactions beyond human control and we will keep protesting for as long as it takes for local and national government to take urgent action.”
