On 15 March, more than a million school and college students, along with teachers and other supporters joined the second global Youth Strike 4 Climate (click for background on the strike, and a report of the first protest). The Youth Strike mobilised around three key demands: enfranchisement (by lowering the voting age to 16), for the government to declare climate change an emergency and to systematically educate young people about the urgency of the climate crisis. Comrades from RCG branches across the country joined the protests with a clear message that only socialism can solve the environmental crisis.
