Watch out, world. The kids have shown up–and they are not here for our b.s. excuses.
Last year, 15 -year-old Greta Thunberg sat on the steps of Swedish parliament, alone, to protest stagnation on climate change. Today, at 16, she is leading 100 000 youth–and adult supporters–in a world-wide clas ten-strike, replenishing the streets of cities and towns around the world for the same intent.
Her singular behave of objection has turned into a massive fluctuation of young people who are fed up with politicians and presidents representing Russian roulette with their own future. On Friday, March 15, students are leaving clas to tell governments that young people want immediate and meaningful activity on the world atmosphere crisis.
Thunberg and others have already sat on the steps of parliament structures every Friday in a #FridaysforFuture crusade, trying to recommend governments to urgently enact policies that will help fend off intensified global warming.
Today, that advance made a startling leap forward.
You have to see the hundreds of thousands of young people showing up at these rallies to believe it.
As of Friday morning, academy impress and rallyings were taking place in more than 2000 points in 123 countries. Check out these photos and videos pouring in from around the globe 😛 TAGEND
Several thousand people in New York City, U.S ., with more on the way . strong>
10,000+ beings were showing Copenhagen, Denmark.
At least 5,000 paraded in Helsinki, Finland.
In Milan, Italy, people pictured up by the tens of thousands–and even more attended rallies in 200 other locations < em> in Italy alone .
Dublin, Ireland–again, digits in the thousands.
25, 000 students filled the streets of Berlin, Germany.
Are we coming the picture more? Everyone who said that kids would just be skipping school to bounce institution shot dead wrong.
The idea that kids don’t truly care about this or aren’t drilled enough about climate change to know what they’re complaining is absurd. Kids is understood science and government in school. Scientists around the globe have made it clear that we were supposed to get rising world-wide temperatures under control or face awful consequences to life on our planet, while governments frisk political and fiscal sports as they ever do.
Kids don’t care about such recreations. They want to acquire a health, livable planet–and they’re willing to fight for it.
Like these kids in Cape Town, South africans 😛 TAGEND
And in Barcelona, Spain 😛 TAGEND

This isn’t a charming little demonstration; it’s a world phenomenon. And it was all started by one adolescent who refused to accept leaders’ self-justifications for lack of action on climate change.
Kudos to Greta, for starting such an inspiring worldwide crusade. Get out of the way, grown-ups. The youth have arrived to save us all.
