Climate Emergency School Strikes going Viral ..#FridaysForFuture

#FridaysForFuture: “We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not”

FridaysForFuture      Published by Enough is Enough. Written by Riot Turtle.       More and more cities across the globe are joining the Frifays for Future school strikes.

On the German territory alone students will go on strike in more than 50 cities on Friday January 18. The school strikes for climate justice were started by 16 year old Greta Thunberg last year.

Is it an anarchist movement.? .. No its not, but many of the school strikes are self-organized and there are many cities where young anarchists are involved in the school strikes. The movement for climate justice is growing fast, many young people are getting active because they see that the “traditional” political system is not acting against climate change.

The Fridays for Future school strikes are often still appealing to politicians but combined with civil obedience butin her speech during the COP24 summit in December, 16 year old Greta Thunberg made very clear that she is aware that politicians will ignore the strike movement:

“If solutions within the system are so impossible to find, maybe we should change the system itself. We have not come here to beg world leaders to care. You have ignored us in the past and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not.”
