CLIMATE campaigners are planning to stage a number of 'banner drops' at yet-undisclosed landmarks across Oxford.

Activists from Oxford Youth Strike revealed plans to target several spots in the city, the location of which will be revealed on the day of the protest this Friday.

This is part of an ongoing set of climate events, which are also supported by the group Parents For Future Oxford who will be doing their own separate action on the same day.

Protesters will meet in the heart of the city at Broad Street at 11am before heading off in small groups to different parts of Oxford to hold up banners at key landmarks.

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

Explaining why Oxford Youth Strike chose to do a 'banner drop' instead of the usual protest 18-year-old campaigner EJ Fawcett commented: "It is important to us as a group that we prioritise people’s safety.

"This is why we replaced the Global Strike Rally with a banner drop action.

"We have to treat every crisis as a crisis and try to make a difference whenever we possibly can."

Oxford Youth Strike said it aims to show that campaigners are still 'watching those in power' as they allow our futures to slip away'.

People who wish to take part in the event are asked to message Oxford Youth Strike on any of their social media to get involved.
