A protest is taking place to demand action on the cost of living crisis today in Belfast city centre.
Organised by the Cost of Living Coalition Belfast, the march is assembling at Custom House Square at 1pm on Saturday before moving to Writers’ Square.
Protesters are taking to the streets calling for action to be taken on the cost of living crisis, whilst there is a political deadlock at Stormont.
“Stormont is in crisis and the Tory government is in tatters, but our communities won’t idly wait for action on the cost of living crisis,” a Coalition spokesperson said.
“Workers are striking for better pay and people are fighting back in the face of skyrocketing costs and bills.
