Climate Strike Canada is a national network of Canadian students that organizes protests to demand climate action. This is the link to their website: Climate Strike Canada where you can find their demands.
The students in Canada are inspired by the numerous First Nations, Métis, and Inuit climate activists who have been voicing their concerns for much longer. The Climate Strike Canada movement is based around the Fridays For Future movement started by Greta Thunberg, the sixteen year old from Sweden, who was nominated for a Nobel prize for her work protesting international inaction on the current climate crisis. Other chapters of climate protest networks exist in almost every country in the world and they can be found through 350.org.
Students and citizens are mobilizing across the world to demand systematic change that deals with the imminence of the climate crisis and to demand politicians ratify policies that effect real change. They believe this is their only hope for a future.
