Climate change activists from Horsham are to take part in an Extinction Rebellion protest in London on Monday.

Members of the Rebellion movement aim to stage a two-week protest at several sites in the capital designed to force action on climate change.

Horsham’s activists say they will be based at a site on or near Whitehall. A spokesman said they would be “focusing on Extinction Rebellion’s ‘third demand’ for a binding Citizens’ Assembly on action to bring about the emissions reductions and ecosystem restoration necessary to address the crisis.”

Activists from across the south-east are expected to converge on the Whitehall site, with many planning to camp in roads.

Ben Kenward, one of the site’s cordinators said: “You don’t need to be part of Extinction Rebellion already to come along and make your voice heard. Eeveryone and every contribution is welcome.”
