Worldwide students strike for climate action, Friday 15 March

Hundreds of Thousands of Students Prepare for Global #ClimateStrike, Truthout Jessica Corbett, , Common Dreams, March 12, 2019 In 92 countries and counting, hundreds of thousands of students are planning to skip school on March 15 as part of the “School Strike 4 Climate” — a growing movement of young people demanding that policymakers worldwide take urgent and radical steps to battle the climate crisis.

For the past several months, students around the world have joined the#FridaysForFuture school strike launched last year by Swedish teenagerGreta Thunberg, whose solitary protests outside her country’s parliament — inspired by the Parkland students advocating for stricter gun laws in the United States — generated headlines that helped spur the global youth climate movement.

“I think we are only seeing the beginning. I think that change is on the horizon and the people will stand up for their future,” Thunberg told theGuardian about the mass mobilization planned for March 15. “It’s going to be very, very big internationally, with hundreds of thousands of children going to strike from school to say that we aren’t going to accept this any more.”

Although the movement has elevated public demands for coordinated global efforts to cut planet-warming emissions generated from human activity, Thunberg added: “I am not more hopeful than when I started. The emissions are increasing and that is the only thing that matters. I think that needs to be our focus. We cannot talk about anything else.” https://truthout.org/articles/hundreds-of-thousands-of-students-prepare-for-global-climatestrike/
