The latest School Climate Strike was a flop, compared to the incredible turn out last time...
A sea of people waving placards and megaphones lined New Zealand’s streets for the nation’s biggest Strike for Climate action to date.
Strike organisers say about 170,000 people around the country took part in Friday’s action.
Schoolchildren, adults and activists all banded together to protest against climate change.
It was the third school strike to take place here this year, inspired by 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
…last weeks strike was in the tens of thousands, not hundred of thousands and it is a desperate reminder that it is obscene for adults to shrug their obligation off to fight against Climate Change to our children!
It is not up to our kids to fight climate change, it is up to us as adults!
We can’t demand ideas from them, we have to do that!
So much energy is spent by those who benefit from the status quo trying to con us into believing change can only be created by the individual choice of consumers rather than political action, we have to understand that the only way to force change is by political action and on that front, it is completely up to us as adults.
We must stop up to this obligation rather than leave it to our kids.
