Greens again encourage students to skip school to protest

Since December, climate-themed protests led by school students have taken place across the country as part of the global Fridays for Futures movement inspired by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. "I want you to panic". "But the reality is far different".

"With our collective energy, the intention of this strike is to actively embody the vision ... for a safe, equitable, and sustainable future for all", said UVic student organizer Antonia Paquin. It's a message that is grounded in the latest science on climate change, while reminding us that climate is a matter of social justice with the burdens falling on those least responsible, including children and future generations. "That's what I expect every parent and student will likely be doing".

It was a complex project but one that was absolutely worth it.

"These young people understand the dire threat the Earth is facing, and they are calling for realistic and reasonable responses to the crisis", said MTA Vice President Max Page.

Rollins admires the people who will strike but expects some students to use the day as an excuse to skip school.

"I think there can be more awareness about it", she said. "It's so important as youth for us to galvanise each other and the stuff that we truly care about, and that we're passionate about".

The action is open to youth as well as supporting adults and elders.

It is evident amongst my peers at school that we feel let down by our current government.

She said that it is "kind of sad" that students have to take it upon themselves to push for policy changes "to ensure that our future is protected".

Furthermore, our age often lets us down. They belittled and demeaned us not taking the most urgent issue to ever befall the human race seriously. However in the upcoming federal election, there are some beacons of hope for climate action.

The Skibbereen Community College student has led weekly protests outside of Cork City Hall since the start of 2019 to protest about Government inaction to tackle climate change.

She says the world is essentially in meltdown, and the impact of a few hours off school pales in comparison to the likely impact of climate change on the lives of today's children.

The strike a year ago drew the ire of PM Scott Morrison who implored children to stay in school. I am frustrated about not learning enough about climate change in school.

Ms O'Donnell's letter states "there is no intention to take punitive action, however young people will be expected to show they have permission in order that their absence from school be recorded as authorised".

Climate Leaders is an initiative that aims to put a spotlight on the candidates with a strong stance for climate action in the upcoming election. "We make it to Friday hundred?"
