Students worldwide walk out of school, protest climate change inaction by governments

Main Msida-Valletta Road To Close This Friday As Students Strike And March Against Climate Change 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Many of them aren't eligible to vote yet, but the people who are most likely to still be living in the world 50 years from now banded together in Montgomery on Friday at the Alabama Youth Climate Strike to demand elected officials take action on climate change.

An estimated 150,000 students and teachers in more than 60 cities and towns across Australia ditched school to rally against climate change in the School Strike 4 Climate march.

In August 2018, Thunberg began camping outside the Riksdag, claiming that the Swedish parliament had not maintained the country's commitments to the Paris Agreement from 2015.

"I am here because I belelive we face the greatest threat humanity has ever faced, which is climate change", said Omar.

All the students, as well as anyone else who cares about the future of our environment, is welcome to join in both the march to Valletta, as well as the actual environmental demonstration happening outside Parliament in Valletta.

Organizer Brendan Gardner, a junior at Bellingham High, said the Youth Climate Strike is modeled after Extinction Rebellion in Britain and Fridays for Future in Sweden, which started last summer.

Using the hashtag #FridaysForFuture, the organizers say they hope to bring national attention to what they say needs to be done to stop climate change. "The oceans are rising, so are we", read another in Sydney. "That's why we are striking today". She began holding solitary demonstrations outside the Swedish parliament past year.

Protesters including the Raging Grannies, as well Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, Friends of the Columbia Gorge and high school students from the Portland Youth Climate Council, gathered in front of City Hall on Wednesday, March 13, to oppose the expansion of Zenith Terminals, which could increase the number of oil trains moving through Portland. Last month, lawmakers in the northern Swiss canton of Basel symbolically declared a "climate emergency".

"We need to hold the older generation accountable for what they are doing to us".

The children have been chanting: "What do we want?"

"We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees", said Norwegian Socialist MP Freddy Andre Ovstegard.

The Green New Deal is a wide-reaching initiative that its supporters say aims to transform the economy to combat the issues of climate change and inequality. The report is clear cut: Either we take these 11 years and stay below the 2 degrees or we don't.

She had already challenged leaders in person at the United Nations climate summit in late 2018 and at Davos in January. "We've got to mobilize our entire society to rebuild ourselves to that we are the kind of place that leads on renewable energy, leads on environmental justice, leads on the dignity of human being on our Earth and those are the same fight".
