Brent environmental activists, politicians and trade unionists will be joining Council staff demonstrating solidarity with the Global Climate Strike on Friday morning with a rally outside Brent Civic Centre in Wembley.
They are answering the call from Greta Thunberg and other young climate activists for the older generation to support the campaign for urgent action on the climate emergency.
Brent Council has given permission for Brent Council workers to join the rally with manager’s permission as long as their attendance does not affect service provision.
Brent citizen’s who recognise the threat posed by climate change are invited to join the Rally from 9.30am to 10am to show their support and to hear speeches from a broad range of speakers including a local school student. Home made placards particularly welcome.
After the rally many of those attending will move on to the main solidarity event in Central London at Millbank, Westminster.
