Students from schools across the Isle of Thanet have gathered in Margate to join a UK-wide protest over climate change today (May 24).
Around 20 students joined the protest at the Clocktower, which was one of nearly 110 protests taking part across the UK. The young strikers are making their voices heard to raise awareness of how climate change will affect their futures.
The protest was well received by locals, with passing motorists and bus drivers honking their horns in support.
The first Youth Strike 4 Climate Change took place in February, including in Canterbury, and action in March and April followed. Youth Strike 4 Climate is a new environmental movement supported by UK Student Climate Network.
