#ClimateStrike Friday 14JAN18

It has been 21 Fridays since Greta Thunberg began the strike at Stockholm, Sweden’s main Parliament Building demanding that her government meet the deadline set by the Paris Accords to which they were signatures.

Much has developed out of her action that day.  First, Greta and other student acquired their voices. They became leaders, not only national, but internationally.
