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

The protest, led by Extinction Rebellion North Wales, included banners, dancing groups and information on coastal flooding given out to passing beachgoers on Wednesday, June 9.

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

The protest involved 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.”
