PLEASE JOIN THE RALLY ON SATURDAY!
As part of the COP26 Coalition’s Global Day of Action for the Climate, North West Wales Climate Action Group is organising a family-friendly march and rally in Bangor on Saturday 6th November.
Starting at 1.30 p.m. from Bangor Pier, the march will proceed to the Clock Tower in Bangor town centre. There a range of speakers, including young people, scientists and campaigners, will talk about the climate and ecological crisis and its local and global impacts. They will explain how to get involved and what steps we can all take to make things better.
Many organisations and local groups are taking part in the event, such as Friends of the Earth Cymru, Christian Aid, Bangor Community Arts, North Wales Africa Society (NWAS) and Bangor and Conwy Extinction Rebellion.
There will be street entertainments and information stalls, and marchers are being encouraged to wear something red to reflect the UN Secretary General’s description of a recent IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report as a “Code Red for Humanity”.
The march and rally coincide with the midpoint of the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow, where world leaders will gather to discuss the steps they are willing to take to combat climate change.
The aim of the Global Day of Action is to put pressure on the politicians to do whatever is necessary to keep global warming within 1.5°C and to provide sufficient support to help the countries and communities that will be worst hit.
