Student-led rally demands immediate action on climate change

Main Msida-Valletta Road To Close This Friday As Students Strike And March Against Climate Change

Izzy Allen, a senior at Brighton High School, hopped off one of the renewable riders and walked up to the microphone to kick off the rally.

More than 400 kids stood below her, wearing backpacks and letterman jackets and school sweaters. "This is our future that we're talking about, and we need to protect it", Madsen said.

More strikes will be planned if the students don't see the action they want from the government. Another waved a banner that said, "Reduce, reuse, recycle and resist". Another 1,000 gathered at the state capitol in St. Paul, Minn., where they chanted, "Stop denying the earth is dying".

She said: "In 2078, I will celebrate my 75th birthday, and if I have children, they may celebrate this day with me". This is causing average temperatures to rise - with consequences that range from more intense winter storms, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and ice caps, longer wildfire seasons, and changes in the ocean's chemistry.

The walkout is happening in many nations around the world - including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, South Africa, Italy, Finland, Switzerland, France, Britain and Germany.

Prior to the November student strike a year ago, Prime Minister Scott Morrison also ordered students to "stay in school". She held a poster that read, "Roses are dead, violets are too!"

Savage took the time to address the crowd, outlining steps Halifax has taken to combat climate change.

We are the younger generation, we are the new generation, the new school coming in.

HSU Professor Sarah Ray spoke to the young people, applauding them for their efforts and reminding them that they were representative of a huge movement going on today. "We are young and unstoppable".

These protests, kick-started by 16 year old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, are starting to gather momentum and today protests were held at Cornmarket, Belfast; the Guildhall, Derry; St Stephen's Green Dublin; Cork City Hall and many more locations. However, while scientists say these events are becoming more likely as the planet warms, President Donald Trump has called global warming a "hoax" and cast doubt on his own administration's findings on climate science.

"This port is being built under the guise of economic opportunities when it only really helps the rich get richer, we will not fall for it", said Mishka Banuri, co-founder of Utah Youth Environmental Solutions, . I don't want to live in that world.

"That's just No. 1, completely wrong".

Mia Eastman said she was planning on attending the climate march, regardless of which city she was in when it happened. "Climate change is inevitable", he said. "This is a national emergency - a real one". "We solve this by every one of you right here, right now, finding your love, finding your passion, your voice and protecting it with your life".

Osime then climbed onto one of the bikes on the steps of the Capitol to relieve a exhausted pedaler as others lined up to speak with the microphone connected by cords to the wheels.
