Friday October 25th
(Apologies – no family pre-meet possible this strike 😦 Normal service will resume next month. The strike is still on and meeting at 12 at St Peter’s Square. This will involve open mic speeches.)
Swedish teen Greta Thunberg started a global movement of climate strike. Manchester children and young people have been doing monthly school strikes to demand that action be taken to protect their futures.
Adults are needed to stand alongside children and young people. This is so important. Children desperately need to see that we – the adults – are doing everything that we can, that they aren’t alone. Children need a chance to be involved as well. If you have children who attend school take them out. If you work, take time off. Invite friends and colleagues.
We meet at Manchester Art Gallery at 11 for children to make banners, paint faces, meet others and then at 12 head over to St Peter’s Square to join the strike. All ages welcome.
