Hundreds March In Downtown St. Louis For Action On Climate Change

Emily Phan Vice-President Fight for Our Lives

They lied down in the food court in silence for 11 minutes, symbolic of the number of years the United Nations says the world has to act before climate change causes irreversible damage to the planet.

Ostertag calls herself an activist and is an environmental scientist by training and experience.

Elizabeth Love, CC '22 and co-hub coordinator of Sunrise Columbia, said she was very excited about the climate strike.

Greta: Of course, I have met many people who don't understand or accept the science, and I just don't try to convince them otherwise, because I don't want to normalize their view, because, I mean, it's just science. About 44% of the population of Ghana have not heard of climate change, one study by Afrobarometer suggests. This initiative is led by 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg ahead of the Climate Action Summit to be held on September 23.

Ostertag said she saw first-hand the power of a shared vision which stopped the Northern Gateway pipeline to bring Alberta crude oil to B.C.'s shores starting about 2010. "The project lost the social licence", she said of Gateway. Climate justice! When do we want it? "Change is coming whether they like it or not". "When they do that, they don't have any arguments left".

"We can't anticipate what will happen if we've gone with business as usual but I think the recent hurricane, the droughts, all of these things are signals about what's in store", Suzuki said.

"Climate change is the existential threat of our generation", Elea Castiglione said. The activists are demanding that the German government and corporations take a fast-track policy route towards lowering Carbon dioxide emissions and combating the warming of the Earth's temperatures. She ended her acceptance speech with a call to action: "See you on the streets!"

Greta: From today, I hope there will be lots and lots of people all around the world who are standing together and are striking for the climate, striking for schools, striking from work. [For] some of us, it's every Friday and some of us, it's whenever we can and many of us on the big global strikes.

"But today we show that young people have such a wide reach in our society through social media and through just everyday life".

But it has also suffered the compounding effects of climate change.

"Our communities haven't made any obvious changes".

Friday's "die-in" is the kick-off to a week of action across the city. They are also calling on officials to vote no on any funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, citing that some families displaced by the effects of climate change seek asylum in the United States.

Abigayle Reese, 21, a Concordia College student and an organizer with the environmental group Friends of the Earth, speaks during the Minnesota Youth Climate Strike on Friday at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul. Later in the day she met with former President Barack Obama. An estimated 300,000 attended the strike in New York City. Its goals are to inspire action to meeting the Paris Agreement targets and exceeding them.
