Oops we’re a bit late on this one. We took this photo at the Youth Strike 4 Climate in Guildford on 15th March. If you want to find out more they’re on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Strike4ClimateGuildford
This is a monthly event, next one is Friday April 12th – if Guildford’s difficult for you there are other events all around the country.
We’ve heard in the grapevine some Dorking students are planning to join the April event.
The movement is run by young people. Adults, please support them but don’t try and control it, it’s their gig. They’re talking to each other, not to us. (& we had our chance the last few decades already).
If you’re not familiar with the Youth Strike movement, it was started and inspired by Greta Thunberg, a Swedish teenager who protested solo outside the Swedish parliament.
Her short speech to the UN in December is well worth 3 minutes of your life.
