Oxford’s first climate strike of 2020

2020’s first climate strike in Oxford with a hint of civil disobedience.

A smaller than usual turnout and not disheartened by the rain, the youth strikers of Oxford met at Bonn Square at 11am on Friday morning.

I’m always impressed with the originality and messages of the posters, puts mine to shame

 

After holding a minutes silent in solidarity  with the youth strikes in Australia, speakers spoke, chants were chanted and the crowd moved through the streets of Oxford.

 

Next, the group was given the opportunity to take part in occupying the entrance to the Westgate car park.

Those that didn’t want to join in were given a safe place to stand, and those that did, were looked after by safety stewards.
