Finally, Anthony Slaughter Leader of the Green Party in Wales joined the streets of Cardiff where thousands of protestors joined the Global Strike. Anthony went on to say that "The massive turnout for today's Climate Strike march in Cardiff showed the strength of feeling from all sections of our community on the ongoing Climate Crisis and the impacts already being felt across the world. While people of all ages were present this was a day when young voices were prominent with speaker after speaker articulating their generation's anger at government inertia. This was a day for politicians to listen and take real, meaningful action to tackle the Climate Emergency. Business as usual is no longer an option"
