Global Climate Change Strikes
Updated: Sep 20, 2019
Schoolchildren and students plan to stage climate strikes in at least 10 locations around the country as part of a global day of climate action next week.
The September 20th rallies confirmed so far will see young people gather in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway city centres as well as in Drogheda, Tralee, Kenmare, Ennis, Navan and Dundalk. Around 60 campaign groups have also pledged to hold events in community venues and workplaces to enable adults to demonstrate their support.
