YOUNG people will be joining in with the climate change protest in Bangor

The North Wales Extinction Rebellion Youth group will be on Bangor High Street today (Saturday)

They will be by the clock tower at 12 o'clock and aim to raise awareness of "climate crisis."

A spokesperson said the protest aimed to "encourage people to think about the political parties environmental policies when they vote on December 12."

They are also highlighting the fact that young people aged 16-18 are not able to vote in a UK election "despite their futures being at stake due to the climate emergency."

Although the Welsh Government has agreed to give 16+ the vote in local elections the voting age for the UK elections remains 18.

North Wales Extinction Rebellion Youth are the youth arm of Extinction Rebellion and share the aims of Extinction Rebellion.

Clara Newman, a 17-year-old Coleg Menai student said: "The climate crisis will have a huge effect on my future. I want people to consider the climate when they vote as I do not have a vote. "
