Students ‘strike for climate’ across the United States
Students across the country walked out of school and into the streets today to demand that the adults running the government start fighting back against climate change. The strikers joined a worldwide movement of young activists who are fighting for a future on a habitable Earth.
The catalyst of the strikes is 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, a student in Sweden whose climate protests in lieu of classes just earned her a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Tomorrow we school strike for the climate in 1769 places in 112 countries around the world. And counting.
