On Friday March 15th, young people took part in a second successive “climate strike”. The Youth 4 Climate event saw a few hundred protestors picket outside the Senedd in protest at a lack of political action on climate change.

Protests also reportedly took place in Aberystwyth and Swansea.

It comes a week after a separate protest took place in Cardiff city centre making specific demands on the Welsh Government to take the issue more seriously and establish a citizen’s assembly.
