QMSU President Talhah Atcha issues an invitation for a worldwide climate change protest
On September 20th a worldwide demonstration is taking place to do with Climate Change. We as a Students’ Union feel this is an issue that affects all student at QMUL and we want to do our bit for our future. On September 20th at 12pm, join us at Library Square & BLSA as we march onto the Green Bridge over Mile End Road and the Dental Hospital respectively to make our voices heard. Join us as we join the protests in Tower Hamlets and the wider world to demonstrate how important Climate Change is. Together we can get the University to Declare a Climate Change Emergency and bring us one step closer to a world where we, along with our children can live long healthy and sustainable lives.
