Protesters Demand Action On Climate Change

Climate change protesters have been gathering in Jersey's Royal Square, demanding the government declares an emergency.

Extinction Rebellion Jersey organised the rally to lobby politicians ahead of a States vote on more urgent action to tackle carbon emissions.

Naomi West is one of the group's members:

"Normal people are beginning to realise that we need to not be ignoring climate change. I know it's an uncomfortable truth, but we really need to be acting now and I think a lot of people are coming to realise that."

States Members are due to vote on the proposition from Deputy Rob Ward this week.
