ARFON'S MP backed young climate campaigner protesting in Bangor.

Hywel Williams stood in solidarity with the young activists who were seeking climate justice.

The Plaid Cymru Member of Parliament took part in Friday's rally which aimed to raise awareness of climate change.

The protesters joined thousands around the country in a day of action to put pressure on the UK government to respond to the deteriorating climate crisis facing the planet.

Mr Williams has called on the political establishment in London to stop "complacency" on climate change.

He said: "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.’

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

"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 governments have sat on their hands.

"I’d like to thank all those involved in organising this important event and to the three hundred or so who came to show their support for this important and timely cause.

"I stand with you today and every day, until we get climate justice."
