Christian Aid: Climate strikes are prophetic movement sweeping the globe


Responding to the global climate strikes, Christian Aid's youth and camaigns manager, Richard Baker, said: 

"The youth climate strikes have been nothing short of prophetic. One seemingly defiant act of protest by a 16-year-old girl in Sweden has grown into a thundering movement for change that is sweeping the globe.

"The climate strikers are pointing the way, it's now time world leaders and big business take heed and take action. This week at the crucial summit in New York we need to see countries making new pledges to cut their emissions and stronger commitments to help the poorest communities already suffering from the climate crisis."
