'March Now Or Swim Later': Students Skip Class For Global Climate Strike

'March Now Or Swim Later': Students Skip Class For Global Climate Strike

Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish activist who is a prominent voice in the fight against climate change, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

In Stockholm, Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg who inspired the protests, was thronged by journalists and several dozen protesters, one carrying a banner declaring "Make the Climate Greta Again".

"That's why they need our support", he said.

"There are a crisis in front of us that we have to live with, that we will have to live with for all our lives, our children, our grandchildren and all future generations", she said. "We aren't very good at lying and we don't participate in the social games that the rest of you are so fond of". "We are already facing devastating and irreversible impacts around the world". It is exciting to realize that there are a large number of kids who also want to see progress, and that we could potentially (finally!) have some real action against climate change.

He said the students should be in school, and if they wanted to engage in political activism it should be on their own time.

Students hold up placards and shout slogans as they march during the "Fridays for Future" movement on a global day of student protests aimed at sparking world leaders into action on climate change, in Madrid on March 15.

The group, made up of youngsters from six high schools across the city, is expecting 500 to 600 pupils to join the strike at Holyrood. Numerous the young people who joined for the rally were meeting for the first time. I don't want people to die because of a thing that could have been stopped if people had taken it more seriously.

Just last week, the City of Portland filed amicus briefs in support of two cases where youth are suing the government over climate change, Chernaik v. Brown and Juliana v.

Rachel Gurevich, a 14-year-old student at East Brunswick's Churchill Junior High and one of the organizers of the Morristown strike, said she was hopeful that the global protests would push policymakers to take action.

In response to the community coming together, Reese said it was late, but "not too late to keep our planet safe, but we must act now".

School spokeswoman Dana Smith said parents are urged to discuss the protest with their children.

Thousands marched through central London with banners reading "The future is in our hands" and "We're missing lessons to teach you one".

Ever since Thunberg began her protest in August 2018, students in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Poland, Thailand, Colombia, and Uganda have staged similar school walkout protests to pressure government officials to look into climate change. Since then, she has continued skipping school every Friday, as per The Guardian.

"Some people say that I should be in school instead".
