Around two hundred protestors protested outside Mann Island in Liverpool last Friday afternoon before, during and after a public meeting of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. The protest was about climate change and greenspaces. Some protestors wanted the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority to declare a climate emergency.

After the public meeting started, the drumming and chanting of the protest outside could be heard in the meeting room.

Towards the end of the public meeting a couple of questions were asked of Mayor Steve Rotheram and you can see what was asked and his response below in the video clips.

A number of other members of the public present also wanted to ask questions during the meeting but were told by Mayor Steve Rotheram that as they hadn’t submitted their questions in advance (by the deadline of Monday at 5.00 pm) that these questions couldn’t be answered.

This response by Mayor Steve Rotheram to their points was not received well. The person who had submitted two questions in advance of the meeting was told that she would receive a written response to her questions within ten working days.
