A national spokesman for Extinction Rebellion will be at East Cowes Town Hall on Sunday, September 15 at 2pm. Dr Rupert Read will be speaking about why it is important for more people to join the numbers demanding radical action to tackle climate change and how they should go about it.
Dr Read’s visit to the Island has been organised by the Isle of Wight Green Party, their spokeswoman Vix Lowthian 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.
“I urge islanders to reserve their seats for this must-see event. We are delighted that Rupert Read has chosen to visit the Isle of Wight just weeks before the Autumn Rebellion commences.”
