Over 1,351 Climate Strikes in 110 Countries Planned for Friday as Global Revolt Escalates.
Two months after what was reportedly the largest international climate demonstration ever, young people around the world are expected to make history again on Friday with a second global climate strike.
Sixteen-year-old Greta Thunberg, who began the global movement in which students around the world have walked out of their classrooms on a weekly basis since last fall to demand climate action, reported Tuesday that at least 1,351 separate strikes are now scheduled to take place all over the world on Friday. Climate justice advocates plan to walk out of their schools and workplaces on every continent on the globe and in more than 100 countries. Global Warming and seas rising.
Two strikes are planned in Antarctica, according to a map on the #FridaysForFuture website; countries including Afghanistan, Namibia, and Uzbekistan are each planning at least one strike, while hundreds of rallies have been planned across Germany, France, the U.S., and several other countries.
On March 15, an estimated 1.6 million people demonstrated in 123 countries. The number of planned protests for Friday surpassed the 1,325 which took place two months ago. 350.org called on supporters to stand with the students leading the global call for an end to fossil fuel extraction in order to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Elizabeth Rose wrote a letter to her member of parliament, Raj Saini, asking elected officials to support a motion to declare a climate emergency on behalf of children in Canada.
“We were elected by Canadians from coast to coast to coast, who expect us to stand up. Who expect us to make decisions based on science, who expect us to take action to tackle climate change, who expect us to come together on the biggest challenge that we face. Who expect us to answer our kids,” McKenna said.
“Our kids are marching in the streets, demanding that we step up.”
