Brixton kids join worldwide climate campaign

Kids' climate rally in Windrush Square

Brixton was today (15 March) part of the worldwide movement of young people demanding immediate and radical action on climate change.

School pupils, mainly from St Jude’s C of E primary school on Regent Road between Railton Road and Brockwell Park, rallied in Windrush Square where they chanted non-stop for almost an hour and were joined by local MP Helen Hayes (Labour, Dulwich and West Norwood), Claire Holland, Lambeth council cabinet member for environment and clean air, three of Lambeth council’s Green Party councillors and economist Ann Pettifor, a co-author of The Green New Deal.

The rally was organised by Lambeth for a Cool Planet.
