At a press conference announcing the amicus brief, students from the climate lawsuits declared their intent to strike and echoed the sentiments of Villasenor, Thunberg and others: why go to school, when the jobs they're training for might not be around?

"I think all of us will probably be united in wanting to ensure we have the kind of political environment where everyone can hold their views, but they can do that safely", Ardern said yesterday. "Obviously, one strike isn't going to change everything, but this isn't the last strike", Hirsi said.

"We are calling on all students to join us to take action on our future!"

While numerous protesters are likely to be university students, a large number are also expected to be high school students.

"When I saw that (Fridays for Future) was planning to have an inaugural protest in the USA on March 15th, I sent out a message to a few friends to see if they wanted to organize a student strike in Bellingham", Gardner said in an email.

Whether or not your have heard of the "School Strike 4 Climate" before today, do you support your children, grandchildren or mokopuna if they choose to protest about climate change this Friday? From there, they will all head to city hall and Province House.

Former Green MP Sue Bradford says she suffered death threats over her anti-smacking bill and MPs need more security training.

Willetton Senior High School student Ryan Hunt, 13, said he was striking to save the world.

As Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pointed out in the wake of the attack, New Zealand has long prided itself on the public's easy access to politicians.

The group is also pushing for American politicians to pass the "Green New Deal", which is a policy proposal being pushed by progressive Democrats aimed at eliminating American greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 while creating new jobs in the process.

On Friday, kids across the Garden State will skip school for a global cause. "With our futures at stake, we call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people". "It's not something that can be taken lightly".
