We weren’t lucky with the weather, but hey, that’s Wellington for you.
It was so great to see so many groups there to support the school students with their climate protest. They included the PPTA, an anarchist group from Vic Uni, at least two Marxist/socialist organisations and others.
It was a pleasure to support School Strike for Climate Wellington in this event and our admiration for their organisers is immense.
Check out a YouTube video of Caz’s speech.
