A second international climate strike will be held on Friday, May 24th, the Youth for Climate movement. People, many of them young, will be taking to streets around the world to make their voices heard in favour of a more urgent, just and equitable climate policy.
March 15 witnessed the first edition of the “global strike for the future”. Marches were held in more than 120 countries around the world, and included some 30,000 demonstrators on the streets of Brussels.
As at the previous demonstration, Youth for Climate has called for unions to take part.
“We invite unions to join the movement to strengthen and spread the message,” said Anuna De Wever, spokeswoman for the movement. She added: “We aim to get as many people out onto the streets as we did in March. To do this, it is clear that everyone who is able to come must do so, including union members.”
