MEMBERS of Extinction Rebellion Stourbridge will be out and about today highlighting their campaign for greater awareness of ecological and climate issues.

The group has staged a couple of demonstrations in Stourbridge this year to try to spread the word about the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill which calls on the Government to respond faster to the climate crisis.

And today (Friday) from around 12.30pm they will be taking to Mary Stevens Park with cardboard 'ghost children' banners ahead of the G7 Summit of world leaders which is set to take place in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, next week from Friday June 11 to Sunday June 13.

Extinction Rebellion say on their website: "We know we are in an emergency and the government isn’t doing enough.

"The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill can change our course—making the government act with the urgency we need."

The group is urging politicians to show support for the bill and local Extinction Rebellion supporter Angela Sutton said: "There are lots of actions taking place across the country, this is our way of highlighting the issue ahead of the G7 Summit. The response we got from the public last time was very good."
