CLIMATE campaigners are planning to stage a dramatic 'die-in' protest at as-yet undisclosed location in the centre of Oxford later this month.

Activists from Oxford Youth Strike revealed plans to target a business in the city, the location of which will be revealed on the day of the protest – Friday, July 24.

In the protest, the participants will lie on the floor playing dead in a form of protest used by groups like Extinction Rebellion.

The event will be socially-distanced, and attendees are being encouraged to wear face coverings and bring hand sanitiser, all of which is to be enforced by stewards.

One 17-year-old member of the group, Holly Thompson, said: "In order to achieve our carbon neutral goal we need to stop funding the climate emergency."

Another campaigner EJ Fawcett, 18, highlighted that climate change w ill not only affect the young but it will affect 'all humanity'.
