Madison Students Plan to Join International Climate Strike

  • Frome students and teachers join protest in London

In Sweden, a teenage girl named Greta Thunberg observed the actions of the Parkland students and took an action of her own: deciding to skip school every Friday in order to lobby the Swedish government into action on climate change.

"The situation we are in right now with climate change can not wait until we finish school", Ms Denman said. Since then, the movement has only grown.

Widespread support being given to the School Strike for Climate now includes support from the Public Service Association (PSA), New Zealand's largest union, and its Eco Network.

"These are young people who are standing up to adults".

Max Prestigiacomo of Middleton High School and Sophie Guthier of Memorial High School are two of the students planning the strike. "So we have a much higher chance of doing that if we bring everyone with us", she said.

Youth culture is said to be defined by its movements - from Rock Against Racism in 1970s Britain to the Black Lives Matter demonstrations that have swept through the US. The reason? A lack of action on climate change.

The move - revealed in a letter from council chief Annemarie O'Donnell to Glasgow's Green MSP Patrick Harvie - represents a shift in the council's message from before the last youth climate strike. Even though Vivanco is not participating in the strike, she is glad that students around the world are.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery was delighted with a statement result that showed his team can hold their own against the league's elite. Of course, the penalty - I think the referee will be disappointed when he sees this, I don't think it's a penalty.

The IPCC report, released last October, highlighted the differences between the impact of a 1.5 deg C global warming scenario and a 2 deg C one, with the latter having catastrophic effects on earth systems, human livelihoods and biodiversity.

"These young people they're saying: "This is our future".

A rapidly growing movement of young people around the world have been inspired by the actions of Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate activist.

"'There aren't very many spaces that I can be in charge of, and what I'm going to say is going to be heard, ' Margolin said. The science has been clear for a really long time, but we've never really faced the issue head on". They staged a mass walkout in protest at United States gun control laws after 17 students and staff were shot dead on campus in February 2018.

If you're thinking about joining a strike but are anxious about the consequences you might face from your school, the American Civil Liberties Union has a guide to student rights during walkouts and protests.
