Climate change protest ‘The Time is Now’ descends in Westminster, London
On Wednesday 26th June, thousands of people attended a protest campaign in Westminster London. Thousands of people, including primary school children and members of the Women’s Institute, have lobbied MPs, calling for urgent action to tackle the climate emergency and critical loss of nature. They were calling for the government to address environmental issues including plastic and air pollution and damage to natural habitats.
The Time Is Now lobby comes after months of growing environmental protests, from school strikes to actions by members of Extinction Rebellion, and increasing warnings of the need for unprecedented action to tackle the global climate.
Gareth Redmond-King, head of climate change at WWF, said: “Public concern is at its highest level. It is a mainstream issue. There are lots of organisations working hard to raise the profile and focus their MPs’ minds on policies and actions to make sure we take action.”
Sadiq Khan, The Mayor of London has announced: “I support the 15,000 campaigners who have come to London today to demand urgent action on climate change. I’ve worked to reinstate London as a global leader on climate action and made a commitment for London to be a zero-carbon city by 2050. “
Now, this is the time that we as Londoners take action ourselves. Businesses and individuals should put all their best towards cultralising and helping the city become greener and more efficient.
