Bangkok students strike against climate change

The State House protest was part of a coordinated strike that inspired rallies throughout Massachusetts and in more than 100 countries from the South Pacific to the edge of the Arctic Circle

Beyond those immediate goals, student activists said they hope to spark a broader cultural shift on climate change. What she says is so true.

As NBC Bay Area reports, and as seen on social media, the students carried signs that said "Green New Deal Now" and "Youth vs. Apocalypse", calling on lawmakers to take drastic action to halt the man-made contributors to climate change.

- In Paris, teenagers thronged the cobblestoned streets around the domed Pantheon building.

Students missed school today to line the streets of London, Rome, Vienna and Sydney with placards declaring "education is important but climate change is more important". Young people don't feel discouraged; we feel like we can do anything we put our minds to. "We saw it in 1968".

Young people make up more than half of the global population.

- Thousands marched in rainy Warsaw and other Polish cities to demand a ban on burning coal, a major source of carbon dioxide.

"And then I thought, 'If no one does anything, I'll have to do something.' When I grow older I want to look back and say I did what I could back then".

School spokeswoman Dana Smith said parents are urged to discuss the protest with their children. The country is vulnerable to rising sea levels and rapid desertification. Students will gather at the Boulder Bandshell at 12 p.m. Friday before marching downtown.

Carla Reemtsma, a 20-year-old student who helped organize the protest in Berlin, said she's part of about 50 WhatsApp groups devoted to discussing climate change. If she wins, she will be the youngest Nobel laureate in history.

In Montclair, students at Montclair High School staged a walkout.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have publicly welcomed the student protests, even as their policies have been criticized as too limited by environmental activists. Brigham Young University students are also set to participate. And gosh do they have some import stuff they want to say.

In addition to a major rally at the USA capitol and more than 70 events around the country, the actions will include an 11-minute school walkout at 11am ET to draw attention to a recent United Nations report warning that we have just 11 years to avoid a climate change catastrophe.

He said the students should be in school, and if they wanted to engage in political activism it should be on their own time.

"This is going to require radical measures and there isn't the slightest sign of that happening yet", said Quaschning.

"I support Holly in her weekly strikes because it is clear that she also understands the seriousness of what we are facing and what the future holds for her and her generation if governments do not take urgent action very soon".
