‘We'll be less activist if you'll be less sh*t’: the best signs from the climate protests in Ireland
Millions of people took to the streets across the world, including thousands in Ireland
On a day that has seen what could be the largest climate protest across the globe in history, thousands of students marched from Dublin’s Custom House for today’s to Merrion Square, in front of Government Buildings where a rally was held. Other protests took place in Cork, Galway Limerick and Belfast and other Irish towns.
Here are some of the best signs from the #climatestrike protests, and if you are reading on The Irish Times app, you can see them here.
Climate Change is a real and undeniable threat to our entire civilization. The effects are already visible and will be catastrophic unless we act now! 🌍#schoolstrike4climate@SCC_Ireland @FFFireland @FFFDUBLIN @SCANIreland pic.twitter.com/tjy0trikL9— Concern Active (@concernactive) September 20, 2019
System change, not climate change. Irish students strike for climate justice- and a future that honours the emancipatory courage and care of the young people leading this movement. #ClimateStrike #ClimateAction #schoolstrike4climate pic.twitter.com/CxGZBUKPoL— Caoimhe Butterly (@CaoimheButterly) September 20, 2019
A great buzz at the #ClimateStrike in Dublin today...— Jane Stout (@JaneCStout) September 20, 2019
Climate change and degradation & loss of nature are two sides of the same coin - protecting biodiversity has climate benefits.
