(If you cannot make it for the start, come and join us throughout the day, but the march will not wait, we cannot hold back the tide – #WeAreAllCrew)

We have a duty to exert pressure in this election, to ensure the Climate and Ecological Emergency is the number one issue on voters’ minds when they cast their ballot next week – and to demand that our politicians sign up to the Three Demands Bill.
