Starting with Northfield High School students, hundreds gathered on Bridge Square this morning in a global event, Climate Strike, to show their support for climate changes necessary for our planet. Students from both colleges streamed into downtown as many more citizens gathered to listen to the speakers and show their solidarity. While it was very tough to hear the speakers, the spirit of the strike was palpable and a number of people stayed to learn and hear more about contacting legislators. While the
schools can’t sanction a walkout, the Northfield School District did not try to stop students from participating in the march. Below are a few pictures and a short video is on our KYMN Facebook page.
