Facing extinction

I strike for
climate action

This generation is more engaged in social and environmental justice issues because we’re the ones who are going to inherit these problems.

I’m scared about the effects that the climate crisis is going to have on the younger generations, including me and including my children. I’m scared because I know that in the next few years, we have to act, and if we don’t, there will be nothing that we can do.

We need to take bold action, and that looks like politicians acting on what faces us. It’s when we see politicians acting in the interest of us and not big business.

I strike because I want my future to be in my hands.
