CLIMATE change activists will stage a protest on Penmaenmawr promenade ahead of the G7 Summit.

The protest, led by Extinction Rebellion North Wales, will see banners, dancing groups, stories from people already affected by rising sea levels and information on coastal flooding in Wales given out to passing beachgoers on Wednesday, June 9.

It forms part of the Make the Wave campaign, in which more than 80 coastal communities in the UK are calling for this weekend's G7 meeting between leaders of the world’s largest economies in Cornwall to prioritise tackling climate change.

The protest will involve Extinction Rebellion groups from Bangor, Conwy and Wrexham, Jerusalema dancers, the Red Rebel Brigade and Friends of the Earth.

Last week oceanographers at Bangor University warned that rising sea levels could cut off the A55, railways and flood towns without "inevitable" coastal defences being put in place before the end of the century.

One event attendee, who is a retired resident of Fairbourne, Gwynedd, which is already set to be decommissioned in the face of sea level rises, said “I feel very strongly that since the Paris agreement, little to nothing has been done about the urgency related to climate change. I truly believe that the promises are fickle and duplicitous.”

Anyone interested in getting involved can email, visit the XR Cymru Facebook page or find your local group by visiting the Extinction Rebellion website.
