Local residents in 15,000-strong illegal march

Hastings and St Leonards residents – including two who found themselves at the head a 15,000-strong illegal march through the streets of Paris earlier this month – reported back on their experiences of the protests outside the UN climate summit at a meeting in Hastings this Sunday. The event was preceded by an hour-long musical event hosted by protestor Thad Skews.
