Youth all over the world have called a global strike to oppose climate change for Friday, September 24, 2021. As of September 14, there are 55 actions taking place across Canada. This is a continuation of the weekly strikes organized by youth and students around the world since 2018 to demand meaningful action on climate change and for youth and working people the world over to work for profound political change and their own empowerment so that they can build a bright future.
The Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada calls on everyone to go all out to support the youth and make the actions against climate change a success. In the global call to action, FridaysforFuture.org writes:
“The climate crisis does not exist in a vacuum. Other socio-economic crises such as racism, sexism, ableism, class inequality, and more amplify the climate crisis and vice versa. It is not just a single issue, our different struggles and liberations are connected and tied to each other. We are united in our fight for climate justice, but we must also acknowledge that we do not experience the same problems; nor do we experience them to the same extent. [More]
