Highlands and Islands Green MSP John Finnie today (8 Feb) joined pupils from Lochaber High School who are striking for action on climate change.
Holly Gillibrand has hit the headlines recently for taking part in the Youth Strike for Climate movement, which involves schoolchildren missing classes on a Friday to call for serious action to tackle the climate emergency.
Mr Finnie visited to lend his support to the committed campaigners and reiterated Scottish Green Party calls for a Climate Emergency Bill.
Mr Finnie said:
“It was a pleasure to join the Lochaber climate strikers at their picket. The climate emergency is the biggest threat facing humanity, and it is inspiring to see young people tackling the issue head on. Governments around the world, including those in Edinburgh and Westminster, need to face up to the catastrophic consequences of climate change and take the bold action that is required urgently.”
