The largest climate change demonstration took place yesterday. The bulk of the participants were under eighteen to the absolute astonishment of all.
While these youthful demonstrators were free to express their personal feelings about climate action through signs and chant, much of their activity was under the direction the Fridays for Future organization. This Friday strike has a special significance to the youth of the world. It is the day of the week that the sixteen year old activist, Greta Thunberg started skipping school in order to protest the lack of action taken to offset climate change in Sweden. Her persistence has prompted worldwide protest.
“She’s like the icon of our generation,” many of the New York protesters are reported to have stated. If so, she has a strange way of showing it. Definitely low-key in her self-expression, Thunberg is incredibly composed. When she speaks her words cut right to the quick. She is sharply focused at a time when most of our authorities are simply paralyzed. She activates the will of those who care about life on this planet. There’s never been anyone quite like her in human history. The closest example might be Jeanne d’Arc, but Greta Thunberg isn’t going to end up publicly betrayed by figures that cannot control her. She has the TRUTH TO POWER world press on her side.
Statements by Greta Thunberg
“For 25 years, countless people have come to the U.N. climate conferences begging our world leaders to stop emissions, and clearly that has not worked as emissions are continuing to rise. So I will not beg the world leaders to care for our future. I will instead let them know change is coming whether they like it or not.”
“For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have gotten away with not doing anything at all to fight the climate crisis … but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer.”
“I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is.”
So until we know whether our “house” can be retrofitted for the future or if it is inevitably headed for demolition, let’s support Greta and all the dedicated souls who are working for the development of workable solutions.. They give us hope.
Now let’s take a look at Fridays . Dayology reminds us that over time many folks have come to believe that certain activities are best pursued on particular days of the week. Still while Friday, ruled by Venus, certainly promotes peace and harmony, not all Fridays are not created equal. It depends on the Sun Sign.
Fridays for Future is an organization that promote peaceful and quiet demonstrations, so they are making excellent use of Friday. Right now they are always active, however two of their recent events have garnered widespread attention. They were both held on Fridays and successful in different ways.
An estimated 1.4 million young people in 123 countries skipped school Friday. March 15, 2019 to demand stronger climate policies. The strike was held in the sympathetic sign of Pisces. It’s purpose was to raise global consciousness. Through the use of heightened emotion and empathy an alarm was signaled. .The second demonstration took place on Friday, September 21, 2019 within the careful sign of Virgo. It was stated that students from 185 countries were involved. and 5,000 events were scheduled for the day. Virgo is the sign of organization and this day of protest proceeded smoothly and efficiently.
