A GROUP of Halloween costume wearing protesters have taken to the streets.

Extinction Rebellion members and supporters took part in their Trick or Treat Procession on Sunday, October 31.

The procession met outside Churchill Square shopping centre in Brighton at 2pm, before walking the streets of the city.

A number of speeches were given through a megaphone underneath the Jubilee Clock Tower on West Street in the city centre.

One protester is fancy dress highlighted the Cop26 summit as a time for the government to make “real changes”.

The protester started his speech by stating “this is truly terrifying”.

“26 times they’ve met, but all of that accumulated power has left us where we are now – still facing a temperature increase of more than two degrees over this century,” he said.

“Far more than we can allow if we want to avoid the worst of the consequences of our actions.

“What isn’t is empty promises. What isn’t needed is lies.”

The conference in Glasgow will see more than 120 dignitaries and heads of state discussing climate changa action over a two-week period.

Prior to the protest, Extinction Rebellion Brighton released a poster which said: “No more tricks. Let’s treat our community better.”

The group also provided pumpkin soup after the protest outside the Unitarian Church on New Road.

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg arrived in Glasgow ahead of the summit on Saturday.

Ms Thunberg is expected to take part in demonstrations during the two-week event and speak at a rally hosted by the Cop26 Coalition.
