The Global Climate Strike vs. Black Friday

By

On Thursday, Collins Dictionary named "climate strike" 2019's Word of the Year. And on Friday, the forces behind the Fridays for Future movement followed that up by confirming the dates of the next two Global Climate Strikes, the first of which will be Friday, Nov. 29, aka Black Friday.

"Thought we were done? See you on November 29 and December 6," reads a post on Fridays for Future's official Instagram account. "NEXT GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKE! The 29th of November is #ClimateActionDay and cities all over the world will have strikes and demonstrations for the climate. The 6th of December is in the middle of COP25 and climate activists, children and youths will be joining strikes and demonstrations all over."
