The September 2019 climate strikes, also known as the Global Week for Future, were a series of international strikes and protests to demand action be taken to address climate change, which took place from 20–27 September. The strikes' key dates were 20 September, which was three days before the United Nations Climate Summit, and 27 September. The protests took place across 4,500 locations in 150 countries. The event is a part of the school strike for climate movement, inspired by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. The Guardian reported that roughly 6 million people participated in the events, whilst 350.org—a group that organised many of the protests—claim that 7.6 million people participated. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_2019_climate_strikes 20-27 September 2019, we saw a record 7.6 million people take to the streets and strike for climate action. The biggest climate mobilisation in history. From Jakarta to New York, Karachi to Amman, Berlin to Kampala, Istanbul to Québec, Guadalajara to Asunción, in big cities and small villages, millions of people joined hands and raised their voices in defense of the climate. The Global Climate Strike shows that we have the people power we need to create a just world and end the era of fossil fuels. https://globalclimatestrike.net Global Climate Strike → Sep. 20–27 – #ClimateStrike Promotion Materials https://globalclimatestrike.net/spread-the-word-climate-strike/#hashtag Hashtags: #ClimateStrike Dates: 2019.09.19-2019.10.06 Number of Tweets: 2,766,462 Size (Hydrated): 21 gigabytes
