Activists Take to Streets for Global Climate Strike

HeadlineSep 27, 2021

Hundreds of thousands of youth climate activists took to the streets Friday for the annual Global Climate Strike. Protests took place across the globe demanding radical action from world leaders to fight the climate catastrophe. This is Maria Reyes, a climate justice activist in Mexico.

Maria Reyes: “Climate crisis is not a thing that will happen in 10 or 15 years. Climate crisis is here. Mexico is one of the most affected countries in Latin America. We have scarcity. We have droughts. We have floods. We have heat waves. We are dying of thirst. We are dying because of heat, and the government is still financing the fossil fuel industry.”
