On Monday, teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg stood up at the UN and gave us fuel in her accusatory words of choice: “How dare you!” With those still ringing in our ears, Barcelona is to mobilize anyone who cares to take a stand against the climate crisis by joining the Global Climate Strike.
It all kicked off last Friday as part of the school strike for climate movement – as inspired by Greta – and with 150 countries having jumped in across seven days, this beast will have been historic. Impressive it’ll have been, but once the placards are put down (until the next call-up) momentum must continue. People power and getting ourselves behind collectively solving the climate crisis and ending the age of fossil fuels is vital.
In Barcelona, head for Jardins de Salvador Espriu (aka Jardinets de Gràcia) above Diagonal at Passeig de Gràcia on Friday, September 27th with a march scheduled for 6pm down Passeig de Gràcia to Plaça Catalunya. Check out the Global Climate Strike website for what you can do post-strike.
(Note: earlier, organizers posted an event scheduled for noon at Moll Bosch but later decided to unite with the event planned for Jardins de Salvador Espriu. People will be gathering from 3pm at Jardins de Salvador Espriu, with the march planned for 6pm.)
March from 6pm (including Democrats Abroad):
