A group of parents were on the seafront together for a peaceful sit down protest calling for action on the climate crisis.

Mother’s Rebellion’s Brighton group met at Black Rock on the seafront for a sit down protest from 11.30am.

They all sat in a circle with signs with the names of children and other messages about climate change.

It was part of a global day of action from Mother’s Rebellion groups around the world in dozens of countries.


Adele Greaves, organiser for the Brighton group, said: “We came down here because we think mothers have the power to demand climate justice for everyone on the planet, especially children.

“We have had people chat with us and we have given some leaflets out.

“We met people we hadn’t met before who have come along.

“It has given us motivation to keep going and doing more events in the future.

“This is more people than we expected so we’re very happy.

“Today is the global Mother’s Rebellion so we wanted to feel that sense of solidarity.”

The group welcomes caregivers of all types.
