Students from Many Faces Education Centre and Hapnot Collegiate, administrators, staff and members of the community gathered with signs at the intersection of Green Street and highway 10A at noon Friday supporting the need for action on climate change. Teacher Daniel Dillon explained it was an educational demonstration to inform local people in regards to climate change. He added there is an initiative started by Greta Thunberg out of Sweden and she’s in Montreal today and there is a national demonstration for students so they’re stepping out and they’re being part of that global movement here in Flin Flon.
The local demonstration was part of events taking place across Canada and around the world. Thunberg told demonstrators in Montreal Friday she will continue to organize protests like those that took place around the world over last week until global leaders take action.
