What is Fridays For Future?
#FridaysforFuture is a peoples movement following the call from @GretaThunberg to school strike.
Why are kids striking?
School children are required to attend school. But with the worsening Climate Destruction this goal of going to school begins to be pointless.
– Why study for a future, which may not be there?
– Why spend a lot of effort to become educated, when our governments are not listening to the educated?
The basics on how/when/where to strike
Greta requests that people strike infront of their closest town hall, every Friday. With a sign, take a picture and post it with the hashtags
How supporters can support
Many people do not think they can strike, i.e. they are worried about their school grades. The Belgium schools all used clocks which then ‘struck’ and then took a picture and this was there method to strike on November 30. Other groups have other ways to find a way to strike, even churches have their bells strike! Some empathy strike. All support is welcome.
