About 300 people gathered at Montreal’s Jeanne-Mance Park to mark the Global Day of Climate Action. The day is part of the Fridays for Future movement which encourages children around the world to join a global online school strike on Friday. During the protest, climate change activists gathered to demand politicians take action to confront the crisis. According to Shi Tao Zhang, one of the march organizers, there are four demands: Achieving carbon neutrality by 2030 Decolonization and giving Indigenous people their land back Status for all migrants and refugees Defunding and ultimately abolishing the police “There cannot be climate justice without social justice,” said Zhang, a spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion… Simon-Pierre Lauzon, a substitute teacher and member of Socialist Alternative, believes social and climate issues are “the same problem.”
