Climate protesters interrupt Bradford council meeting

Climate change protesters stormed a Bradford council meeting last night to urge stronger action from the city.

Security had to be called twice to remove some of the campaigners from Extinction Rebellion, who accused council bosses of a "chicken feed" response to a global catastrophe and urged them to "act now".

Bradford Council said people who are disruptive at meetings will leave the council with "no choice" but ask them to leave.

It's been agreed following work with campaigners and Muslim faith leaders in the city.

There are four definitions of Islamophobia included in the motion, which are:

  1. Inciting or carrying out acts of hatred and violence against people of the Islamic faith (Muslims).
  2. Direct or indirect acts of discrimination including policy and practice within organisations, which deny Muslims legitimate and fair access to opportunities, facilities and services because of their faith, beliefs and practice.
  3. Denying people of the Islamic faith the opportunity to practise their faith values, free of harassment, fear of violence against them or fear of incurring discrimination and hatred against them.
  4. Actions which perpetuate a climate of mistrust, fear and a sense of marginalisation about or within the Islamic community.

Bradford Council also voted to accept a definition of anti-Semitism last summer.

A review of its services has recommended a number of changes, to help the council go plastic free in five years time.

It includes using only biodegradable bin bags and introducing more plastic bottle recycling areas.

However, some environmental campaigners want to see the changes brought in sooner.
