BRUSSELS | Thousands skip school again to go to Belgium climate protest
BRUSSELS —Jan 17, 2019—More than 10,000 students skipped school again in Belgium to join a march demanding better protections of the globe’s fragile climate.
Despite the rain and cold, the colorful protest march in Brussels was bigger than the initial one last week.
Banners reading “School strike 4 Climate” and “Skipping school? No. We fight for our future,” highlighted the march, which was free of incidents.
Some schools show understanding for the no-shows.
