Hundreds of school students expected to take part in tomorrow's event to protest inaction on climate crisis

SACKVILLE, N.B. —

Hundreds of Sackville youth are expected to join young climate strikers all around the world tomorrow for the Global Day for Climate Action.

The worldwide #FridaysforFuture climate strikes, which are scheduled to take place on Friday, March 15 and Friday, May 3, are part of an international movement that began last August when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis.

Students from all of Sackville schools – from Salem Elementary to Mount Allison University – will make their voices heard during tomorrow’s events, which include a rally that gets under way on the university campus at 10:30 a.m., followed up by a march to town hall at 11 a.m., where there will be several student-led presentations and questions for political leaders.
