ARFON MP for Hywel Williams joined students and youth climate campaigners in Bangor.

A day of action to raise awareness of climate change and to put pressure on the UK government to respond to the "deteriorating climate crisis facing the planet," was held on Friday.

Hywel Williams MP reiterated his party Plaid Cymru's commitment to action on climate change.

"To know with utmost certainty that our current treatment of the environment will lead to irreversible and catastrophic damage, but to do so little about it, shows how broken our political system is.’

"No one is immune from the effects of climate change, but it is future generations that will face its worst consequences. Without fast and meaningful action, we’ll soon be facing a real and immediate existential crisis," he said.

"It was incredible to see so many young people in attendance today’s rally in Bangor, making a stand for their own futures and the future of our planet. It is young people who are inspiring change.

"Life on Earth is in danger, and scientists all agree that we are entering a period of climate breakdown. That could be very sudden and even more unpredictable, and we are totally unprepared.’

"The time for tinkering around the edges has passed. We need radical global action to reverse the effects of climate change. The warnings from scientists have been there for years but successive government have sat on their hands.

"They’ve sat on their hands because they’ve prioritised the fossil fuel lobby over those lobbying for green energy and sustainable transport.

"I’d like to thank all those involved in organising this important event, especially Bangor Students Union who have been proactive in their work on climate and environmental issues. My party and I stand with you stand with you today and every day until we get climate justice."
