Climate strikers in Leamington hold up traffic in fourth nationwide demonstration

Leamington Editorial 19th Jul, 2019   0

CLIMATE strikers in Leamington caused traffic delays today as they marched in front of traffic.

Around 20 young people and parents caused a stir among drivers as they demonstrated along the parade while holding up buses and a string of cars.

It is the fourth ‘You Strike 4 Climate’ to take place in the town and one of some 60 areas across the UK.

It will be the last demonstration until September when pupils are back in school – when the demonstrations typically take place.




The movement was inspired by teenage activist Greta Thunberg, who demanded political action against climate change outside Swedish parliament during her lessons last year.
