The school strike for climate movement is holding another coordinated international protest starting today.
The movement, started by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, involves teenagers striking from school on Fridays in an attempt to get the world’s governments to address the climate crisis and start transitioning to a zero-emissions future.
This time, though, they’re asking adults to strike with them as well, calling on those not already participating to stop working for half-hour as a sign of solidarity.
Let’s demand an end to the age of fossil fuels and usher in a new age of natural Solutions and climate justice for everyone. No matter where you are in the world, here are some simple ways you can get involved with a #climatestrike near you. #globalclimatestrike pic.twitter.com/KyiYft9mu2— Ivan Rodriguez (@ifrodriguezm81) September 20, 2019
This protest will last a week and has already started strong with people of all ages flooding the streets today.
Protesters have poured out in cities like London and Nairobi, as well as others across the globe.

We know that people power makes a massive difference to the reality of decarbonisation - which needs bigger, louder, broader public pressure. But this is way bigger than I expected. #schoolstrike4climate pic.twitter.com/jd7EL3sGPx
Keep Calm and show some love towards planet. Burn egos not coal, melt heart not glaciers, change habits not climate. #ClimateStrike #FridaysForFuture.— Ali (@7aliabbas1) September 20, 2019

Students and their teachers are making their presence felt.
Parents and grandparents are out as well, marching for their children’s future.
Here with my 88 year old Grandma, Mum @janecaro and my Dad (taking the picture). I will be able to look my babies in the face this arvo and tell them that people all around the world are fighting for them. Thank you, all. #SchoolStrikeForClimate #schoolstrike4climate pic.twitter.com/B7AfTJZmcZ— Polly Dunning (@PollyDunning) September 20, 2019
As requested, professionals came out of their offices to throw their weight behind the teens.
Musicians played in honor of the strike.
Protestors wore elaborate costumes and carried eye-catching signs, trying to bring as much attention to the crisis as possible.

This week, in advance of the strikes, Thunberg testified before Congress, calling on U.S. leaders to “listen to the scientists,” a message these protesters are hoping to amplify.
