A CLIMATE change protester will speak to the Isle of Wight Green Party and other activists on the Island about a greener future.

Dr Rupert Read, national spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion, a group that made the news earlier in the year for its protests in London and Manchester, will present a talk entitled 'Rebels with THE Cause: A Possibility of a Greener Future at East Cowes Town Hall.

Dr Read will urge people to join groups such as Extinction Rebellion, which demand radical action to tackle climate change, and call on politicians to take action.

Vix Lowthion, Isle of Wight Green Party spokesperson, said: “Scientists and the United Nations tell us we have only 12 years to save the Earth and time is running short.

"We need to harness our desire for change to get meaningful action from our politicians to protect our planet for future generations."

The talk will take place at 2pm next Sunday, September 15.

The event is free and doors will open at 1.30pm.
