Extinction Rebellion protestors in Bury St Edmunds urge public and councillors to join fight against climate change




A group of protesters took to the streets last week to encourage Bury St Edmunds residents to join the fight against climate change.

Members and supporters of the Extinction Rebellion movement gathered outside various schools in the town on Friday in a bid to get drivers to stop idling when dropping off and picking up their children.

They also marched from Angel Hill to the arc shopping centre on Saturday, with individual members making speeches and reading poetry around the issue of climate change and protecting the environment.

Pop band Hadi and the protector also played as part of the march, while children drew symbols and messages on the ground with chalk.

A group of around eight also attended the West Suffolk Shadow Council meeting on Tuesday and posed a range of questions to the council about climate change and its plans to protect the environment.
