Madison Students Plan to Join International Climate Strike

Elise Malterre and Liam Neupert are the brains behind Boise's Youth Climate Strike

Students prepare their signage for the schools strike for climate change. "We can not teach on a dead planet". "Her group is led largely by young women of color, which she said should come as no surprise, because people who are already vulnerable are going to be disproportionately hit by climate change".

"Students throughout history have been a critical driving force of social movements".

LOCAL students are urging fellow peers to cut class on Friday as part of the controversial climate change strike taking place in cities and towns nationwide. "The students leading this movement have demonstrated courage in standing up to the powerful forces that want to protect the massive profits being made by maintaining the status quo". Although there is not an organized strike at BHS, the environmental club, Leader in Environmental Awareness and Protection (LEAP), will have a petition for Vermont legislature encouraging them to have stronger policies on climate change.

As well as marches in Dublin and Cork, there will be strike events outside local authority offices in counties from Kerry to Donegal, Meath to Galway, and locally at school gates across the country.

Misky Noor, another BHS junior, expressed her disapproval of current politics surrounding climate change. "The people who are in power now need to do this now".

"It is important that normal process is followed if there was an absence on the day for the safety of the students, and to keep families informed of the actions of their children".

"The situation we are in right now with climate change can not wait until we finish school", Ms Denman said.

'I'm appalled that this teacher, while being paid by the taxpayer, has sought to undertake political activity, ' Mr Stokes said. So instead of looking for hope, look for action.

Thunberg says even if young people put pressure on adults, it is up to world leaders to make changes now that her generation can inherit.

"I am really passionate about climate change and the impact it has on our environment and I feel it is the biggest issue facing young people in the future". "Because if we don't get it, and no one does it for us, then we'll never get anything done".

"[Strikers are] letting the school know that [climate change is] actually serious and we need to be doing this Not just the school, people in general like the community and everyone around the community", she said. It was created by a group of strikers as a follow-up to the climate strike, as we wanted to make a difference, not only through protest but also through the electoral system.
