Climate strike – Millions demand urgent action to save the planet in largest environmental protest in history

Greta Thunberg is set to speak in New York as over 4,500 strikes are planned across 150 countries in the largest ever protest over the climate crisis

Today, millions of people will abandon schools and workplaces to take part in the largest ever global strike over the climate crisis.

Protests are planned in 150 countries, with Greta Thunberg and other youth activists leading the charge in New York. The strikes mark the start of a week of action, bringing international attention to the environmental emergency. “What I’m telling you to do now is act,” Thunberg told crowds in Washington earlier this week, “because no one is too small to make a difference.”

The strike has three core demands: no fossil fuels, support for communities at the frontline of the crisis, and holding polluters accountable.
