These protest signs from today’s climate strikes are inspiring

Hundreds of thousands of students from across the globe went on strike today, protesting global inaction on climate change and asking world leaders to step up to do their part. People poured into the streets and made their collective voices heard — both verbally and in the signs they held — many of them too perfect to ignore.

Students of all ages took part in today’s protests, joining the masses who decided to skip school or work and spend the day fighting for our planet. Though some cities like New York excused its 1.1 million students, allowing them to skip school today and not penalize students joining the strike, others will have unexcused absences or consequences but felt the movement was more than worth it.

Parents, community leaders, and many others joined forces with students in support of the protests, reminding the governments from around the world that if something isn’t done now, their children (and children’s children) won’t have the same quality of life that previous generations have enjoyed.
