Climate of change - School strike for the climate

IN ACTION Last December more than 300 local high school students and supporters took part in the School Strike for Climate Action

Whether students should be striking during school time was a decision for students and their parents, Ardern told local media earlier in the day.

Some Palmerston North students will be allowed to attend Friday's schools strike for climate change, if they have written permission, but others who wag will be treated as truant. "We can not teach on a dead planet".

A prominent pupil in the Irish climate strike movement has rejected the Taoiseach's recent endorsement of students until he acts appropiately to tackle our runaway emissions.

The Youth Climate Strike platform seeks adoption of the Green New Deal, which promotes greater reliance on renewable energy as well as measures that emphasize the use of scientific research in establishing climate and energy policies. She's passionate about action on climate change and will help facilitate the strike, organising specifics including time, location and the schedule.

What happens to the disgraced cardinal now — George Pell
Judge Kidd said by his offending in such a "risky and brazen" manner, it was inferred Pell was prepared to take such risks. Pell maintained his innocence throughout and has filed an appeal, which is set to be heard in June.


"Students throughout history have been a critical driving force of social movements". The protest actions are based on the school strike of Thunberg, which had begun in August 2018, in order to demonstrate in front of the Parliament in Stockholm for a stronger commitment of Sweden against climate change.

Even though the youth might not be in power, BHS junior Wyatt Rollins is glad that young people are leading the climate movement. Some people say that I should be in school instead.

"We need to emphasize that climate change isn't fake news; that it's real, [and] that it's going to affect us in the very near future", she said.

More than 40,000 people braved miserable conditions in Amsterdam on Sunday to protest against the Dutch government's action over climate change, organisers said.

Seventeen-year-old Jamie Margolin, the founder and executive director of Zero Hour, a group organizing the U.S. protests for the International Day of Action planned for March 15, told BuzzFeed that climate activism has given young women a chance to be heard. "If our leaders on a global and a national level were doing their jobs properly then we wouldn't have to strike". She said the action is meant to put the spotlight on an issue that impacts all Americans, regardless of party affiliation. Now they are just debating how fast or what we need to do. "The youth of this world has started to move and we will not rest again".

A small number of parents had contacted Yeatman, but they were not in support of students missing class for the strike.

Fellow co-organiser, Year 12 Coffs Harbour Senior College student Caitlin Zugajev, said adults are also being urged to join the rally.
