Flash Mobbing on the Climate Crisis
The world is sleepwalking into a crisis of epic and historical proportions, and unless we wake the world leaders up we will all face a living nightmare. That’s why I took part in a flash mob demonstration in Cardiff today, along with thousands of people around the world.
A flash mob is similar to a demonstration but slightly different: it's where a group of people arrange in advance to suddenly converge somewhere at a set time, perform a specified action before dispersing again. I hope it's raised some attention in Wales and around the world about the urgency of climate change.
In Cardiff everyone set clock alarms off, wore blue and twirled umbrellas in the air (see the video).
