Of those millions of people, Northampton saw hundreds of its own activists descend on the town centre, holding placards before Eco March Northampton organiser Mia Joice kicked off the speeches. The march was coordinated by three young Northampton women - sisters Mia Joice, 18, Ava Joice, 14 and their friend Lorna Lewis, 18.
