Don’t Despair. Do Volt.
September 24th – Today is “Uproot the System” day as tens of thousands of youth in over 1400 cities around the world protest climate inaction by governments and corporations.
What is Uproot the System?
This protest day is part of climate activist Greta Thunberg’s Fridays for the Future movement, centered in Europe but featured in every continent.
It is understandable that people can feel despair over the plight of our planet and the “all talk, little action” being foisted upon the situation by various global players. Uproot the System targets the rich Western countries’ meager approach to the climate crisis. These countries have the most resources and often are the heaviest polluters. Uproot the System calls out the rich countries who have not delivered on their promises of economic assistance to those countries on the front lines feeling the largest impacts of climate change – rising oceans, industrial smog, burning forests, and flooding. In many cases, these countries in the developing world have no resources to help their populations adapt to the changes brought about by climate change.
