Millions of Protesters Join Climate Strike Worldover

  • Inspired by the 16-year old Swedish environment activist Greta Thunberg, millions of people have participated in a global climate strike across the world on Friday. The worldwide mass protest against global warming and other environmental issues comes just a week ahead of the UN summit at the headquarters of the United Nations in Manhattan. The millions of activists (starting from the Pacific, Asia, Africa, Europe to the Americas) demanded greater efforts for tackling the climate change. The demonstrators in some of the Pacific Islands (including Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, and Kiribati that are on the verge of being submerged by the rising sea level) kicked off the global climate strike by chanting “We are not sinking, we are fighting.” Reports say around 350,000 protestors from all walks of life (including school children and workers) joined the climate strike. Many workers of Amazon, Google, and other technology companies joined the climate strike in San Francisco to push their companies undertake more drastic action for tackling global warming.
