Strike

Global climate strike in Palma.

17-09-2019Pere Bota

A group called Docents pel futur (Teachers for the future) is calling on teachers in the Balearics to join the 27th of September global strike for the fight against climate change and to ensure that schools on Friday week engage only in activities related to the reason for the strike.

The group says that for teachers to take part would be a gesture of support for young people who are mobilising because of their future and are participating in a global movement that is growing ever stronger. The coordinator of the group has proposed that environmental commitment is incorporated into educational practice at schools and into schools' management.

Teachers are also being asked to join a rally this Friday that will mark the start of the week of global action for the climate. This will be in Palma's Plaça Cort. Among organisations which will be participating are environmentalists GOB and Terraferida and the Majorcan branch of Extinction Rebellion.

Having said all that, I have read up more on the International movement/s behind these protests and they do seem to be gaining momentum. So good luck. Voting in elections and with your pocket still counts far more. I wonder how the greens will do on Nov 10? Hmm.

What a wasteful indulgence. Unfortunately seen as ineffectual bandwagoning that is probably contributing to the confused calamity of climate change. The reality is that people need to vote with their pockets, not their feet. Big business runs the show and politicians have limited clout. people need to be better educated on what they can do effectively to make a difference. Too much opposition like this is on the margins and not believed and still ridiculed by the mainstream. BUT all for a day off! Yey!

Pity they could not have done this during the very lengthy summer holidays, rather than disrupt the education of those who have only just returned to school.
