Thousands storm County Hall as part of global strike action on climate change

‘We want climate justice, and we want it now’ – thousands of protesters of all ages marched on Devon County Council headquarters as part of global strike action.

Around 3,400 people – including many from East Devon, rejected their usual education or work commitments to take part in the worldwide climate change protest on Friday (September 20).

After gathering in Exeter’s city centre, they marched on County Hall, in Topsham Road, in protest at a lack of action by the government on climate change.
