The organiser of the youth climate march along Nasese that was stopped by Police says they applied and got permits from the Fiji Roads Authority and Suva City Council but did not apply for a Police permit.

21-year-old Atalemo Laticakaudrove says it is good that they now know the procedures of applying for a permit after being informed by Police officers.

They had gathered yesterday morning to march to My Suva Park when Police officers arrived.

He says about 100 people were part of the march to raise their voice about climate change and support the Government’s efforts at the COP26 climate conference.

Laticakaudrove adds while majority of those part of the march were Catholics, there were also youths from other denominations.

He further says Police allowed them to walk to the Pacific Regional Seminary Hall where they continued the event.

Police say there was no permit issued by them for the march and it was relayed to senior members part of the march that they needed a permit issued by Police in consultation with the Fiji Roads Authority and the relevant municipal council.
