School strikers get adult support for Friday climate protest
The global school strike protest on Friday is likely to disrupt the city’s streets, with adult individuals and organisations prepare to join their younger counterparts for the first time as part of a massive global day of action.
The SchoolStrike4Climate event starts at Shire Hall at 9.30am. The campaigners, backed by a vast global network of strikers who have teenage Swedish activist Greta Thunberg at their head, will march into town at 10.15am, and are expected at King’s College for a “die-in” at 11.15am, featuring a variety of alarm bells going off.
Ella Hone, 12, has been a school striker since the start of the year. She said: "I'm really excited to see how this turns out. Greta has called for adults to join with us this time.
