The head of the Climate March is now at the beachfront whilst the tail of the march is still on its way down Jonson Street with well over 1000 people and students marching. The Echo has received a number of calls from people stuck in traffic on Ewingsdale Road who are unable to get to the march, and those people are encouraged to swell the numbers at the beachfront rally to emphasise the importance of this issue.
There are so many protesters that police have now had to allow them to use half the road, instead of requesting protesters to remain on the footpath.
Organisers delayed the start of the match by approximately half an hour as they waited for arrivals that are coming in from surrounding areas. Currently there is traffic queued back as far as Tyagarah.
Please be patient and drive safely as you attend the protest.
