This past Friday youth around the world turned out for the first truly global Climate Strike and the numbers were impressive. While by no means an official count , there were school strikes in 125 countries, and individually 2,083 locations on all seven continents with 1.4 million people participating. Flip through some of the photos online and the images of people are staggeringly awesome. Give credit to Greta Thunberg for getting this all started and she has a few photos on her instagram account.
We attended the school strike that was held on the Washington Mall in front of the US Capitol building and have posted a number of photos to our Flickr page and other social media accounts. The image above is from the DC rally and perhaps not too impressive, but checkout the images below…
