Global Climate Strike in Toronto

Toronto's youth marched for the climate, joining over 150 countries in the second global climate strike on Friday, September 27, 2019. Taking time from school, students and supporters gathered at 85 Canadian cities with Toronto's strike beginning and ending at Queen's Park. Later the strike became a protest march heading down through the streets of Toronto demanding more action to combat climate change.

The Global Climate Strike website says that "Young people have woken up much of the world with their powerful Fridays For Future school strikes for the climate. Now, millions of adults are joining in a huge wave of that will kick start renewed action all over the world. The urgency of the climate crisis requires a new approach and a just response centered on human rights, equity, and justice. Follow the actions and join the movement."

I was shocked how many people were participating in the Toronto protest as untold thousands streamed past my window on Bay Street alongside City Hall. They turned west on Queen Street and returned to Queen's Park via University Avenue.

See some of the signs put up for the strike after the jump.
