Oxford street is full of fast fashion and it’s a stark reminder in the western world that while we enjoy a culture of convenience people in the global south are working in bad conditions.”

A roundup of activity around Britain, from Sheffield to Birmingham.
Fantastic feeling here in #Birmingham for the #YouthStrike4Climate. Many strikers here have got the message and are eating @GreggsOfficial #vegan sausage roles as they wait for the protest to begin! https://t.co/ydeS3CN00t
