It’s happening again tomorrow:
Youth Climate Strike in Exeter
As reported in the Times last month:
Pupils who skipped school to protest about climate change have said they will continue their demonstrations throughout the summer because they are “not about skiving”.
Thousands of teenagers have formed networks to co-ordinate campaigns to demand action by politicians on climate change. They have held monthly strikes simultaneously with young people around the world, gathering in Westminster and city centres on Fridays. Some met Greta Thunberg, the Swedish girl aged 16 who started the movement, on her visit to the UK this week and they vowed to escalate the campaign over the holidays.
George Bond, 16, from Devon, describes himself as a legal and financial strategist for the UK Student Climate Network. He is also taking GCSEs, which he says “compete for his time”…
