More Than 2 Million Take Part in Global Climate Strike

Sep 30, 2019

More than 2 million people took to the streets in a massive Global Climate Strike Friday. From Bangladesh to Uganda to Chile, demonstrators walked out of work or school to demand world leaders act to solve the climate crisis. One million people protested throughout Italy alone. In Montreal, 600,000 people joined the strike, including Greta Thunberg, the Swedish climate activist who sparked the Fridays for Future movement.

Greta Thunberg: “This week, world leaders from all around the world gathered in New York for the U.N. Climate Action Summit. They disappointed us once again with their empty words and insufficient plans. We told them to unite behind the science, but they didn’t listen. So, today, we are millions around the world, striking and marching again, and we will keep on doing it until they listen.”

The protest followed the September 20 global demonstration that brought more than 4 million people into the streets. 350.org founder Bill McKibben called the week of protests “almost certainly the largest demonstration our planet has yet seen about climate change.”
