A strike is being organized in Campbell River.

Campbell River students have been striking every Friday for some months now, following in the steps of the young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. Our Minnesota teens and pre-teens have joined others, including well-known student climate activist Greta Thunberg from Sweden, to voice their climate concerns and band together through groups such as Fridays for Our Future and Global Climate Strike.

Thunberg has been protesting for more than a year for more climate protection.

Fridays for Future' climate activists planting trees.

Merkel's Christian Democratic Union said Monday that it prefers a national emissions trading scheme as a way of reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gases, while providing financial incentives for those willing to switch to low-carbon vehicles and heating systems. Youth climate strikers have invited everyone to walk out in solidarity with them for two global mass actions on Friday September 20 and 27.

"We would urge pupils to talk to their schools about activities which could take place in school to highlight the climate emergency rather than taking part in a strike". The center-left Social Democrats, the junior partners in Merkel's coalition, have instead called for a tax on carbon that would then be redistributed to avoid hitting the poor the hardest. "Children are behaving like adults, when many adult political and business leaders are behaving like children".
