Climate change protesters Extinction Rebellion will hold five days of demonstrations in Leeds city centre, starting today (Monday).

The group is targeting the financial sector in Leeds, demanding companies to ‘act now to stop financing the fossil fuel industry’.

Protests have previously been held in the city, with campaigners blocking roads during a ‘swarming protest’ in the city centre back in May.

Other cities, including London, will be targeted by Extinction Rebellion throughout this week. The Leeds action will begin from 10am in City Square.
