Global climate strike in Toronto, is expected to become the biggest protest against climate change ever organized in the city.
Young activists around the world participate in a mass movement demanding immediate action to prevent the global climate crisis.
Strike at the head of which stood Teens, already are around the world, but climate strike in Toronto will be held Friday, September 27.
Sailed on a yacht with a zero carbon footprint, activist Greta Thunberg, who became the face of the ethics of strikes, last week, was up on stage to appeal to more than 1.1 million students who flooded the streets of Manhattan.
However, not only teenagers, but any who care about the future of the planet (and who, probably suffering from climate anxiety: mental illness, growing on the background of thoughts about the impending doom of the Earth), can participate in the action along with young people.
