Students of St Xavier’s College of Management and Technology, Patna have expressed solidarity with the Global Climate Strike.
They were among millions of students of colleges and schools who on September 27 took to streets at more than 4,500 demonstrations in at least 130 countries to demand politicians to urgently tackle the climate crisis.
The youth climate campaign, started by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg outside the Swedish parliament a year ago, has grown from a solo protest to a campaign of millions of young people demanding radical action. Adults, businesses and trade unions have also joined the youth climate campaign. Sharan Burrow, general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation, said its 200 million members in countries from South Africa to Germany, Mozambique to Turkey stood shoulder to shoulder with the students.
