• Luke joins the Extinction Rebellion march in Plymouth
  • Luke: “Climate change is real, and we need to take action.”
  • Labour are proposing a Green Industrial Revolution

Luke Pollard showed his support for Extinction Rebellion as they descended on Jigsaw Garden yesterday. Extinction Rebellion are demanding urgent action on the climate emergency we are facing. Global temperatures are breaking records year on year, sea levels are rising to unprecedented levels, species are being lost, and biodiversity is at risk. Addressing the environmental challenges that we face requires a transformational effort from government and urgent interventions now.

Luke Pollard running for re-election as the MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport said:

“Extinction Rebellion have done a fantastic job in raising awareness to the climate emergency we are facing. Climate change is real, and action to avert the consequences of climate change are urgent. As a Shadow Environment Minister, I often took the opportunity to speak about climate change and directly call on the government to take more immediate and meaningful action to protect our planet.


Our planet can’t wait for the Tories to realise the emergency. I’ll be 70 when the Conservatives Net Zero commitments are met. That is not good enough. Labour are pledging to be Net Zero by 2030. I am so proud to stand on a manifesto that is offering transformational solutions to the climate crisis we are facing. ”

Labour will kick-start a Green Industrial Revolution that will create one million jobs in the UK to transform our industry, energy, transport, agriculture and our buildings while restoring nature. The Green New Deal aims to deliver an economy that serves the interests of the many, not the few, where social justice and environmental justice goes hand in hand.
