On 26 June Rushanara Ali MP met constituents in Westminster at The Time Is Now environment and climate lobby. The protest was one of the largest environmental campaigns with an estimated 12,000 people demanding urgent action from MPs on the natural environment and climate change.
Rushanara Ali MP said:
“It was great to meet my constituents to discuss the importance of climate action, and to see so many passionate people raising awareness and engaging in the issues of climate and ecological breakdown.
I am very pleased that Tower Hamlets council was the first in the country to declare a climate emergency. We need urgent action on climate change, and I’ll be working to make sure their voice is heard in parliament at this critical moment for climate, nature and people.”
