This month, starting tomorrow until September 27, students across Canada are organizing a week of action to call attention to climate change. People around the world are seeing more and more severe weather. Oceans are rising, deserts are growing and the planet is in trouble. We are glad to work with organizers who are demanding that every government and industry take on climate change as a priority. Today on rabble we’re talking to Climate Strike organizers across the country about what they are planning for upcoming week of action.
This edition of rabble radio is done in partnership with rabble’s Lynn Williams Activist Toolkit, and the help of toolkit editor Maya Bhullar.
