Around the world students are taking the streets today to let people know that they want to live on a planet without cataclysmic climate change. Previous generations neglected to act to prevent global warming and it’s the current youth who are going to have to deal with the destruction of the global ecosystem. They are demanding all of us, particularly those in power, to change the destructive course we are presently on.
Good for these students for getting out there and making sure that adults everywhere know that these kids aren’t going to let the planet be killed through negligence.
By 10.30am a steady stream of schoolchildren were pouring into Londonâ€™s Parliament Square brandishing homemade banners declaring â€œcoral not coalâ€, â€œStop denying the earth is dyingâ€ and â€œwhy the actual fuck are we studying for a future we wonâ€™t even have?â€
Among were a group of 12 and 13 year old girls from Waldergrave School for girls. Lourdes, 13, who was with her dad Leif Cid said they felt they had no choice but to come. â€œThe world is getting hotter and hotter but the adults, the politicians arenâ€™t doing anything about it â€¦ we have to do something.â€
