Last week Barry addressed Extinction Rebellion protesters at Trafalgar Square during their peaceful, direct action to raise awareness of the climate emergency.
Barry spoke about the necessary action that was needed to reach net zero on carbon emissions by 2030 under a Labour government.
Speaking of Labour’s plan for Climate Change and the Green Industrial Revolution as well as action taken by the group Barry said;
“That is the hope, that is what we have to look forward to. To create a world in which the natural environment, climate change and our economies are aligned instead of a world where they are tearing each other apart. What you have achieved and what you are achieving is amazing. You have forced politicians to actually pay attention, not just here, but right round the world.”
