No. A strike involves the withholding of productive labour. These kids are simply playing truant using the best ‘dog ate my homework’ excuse evah: ‘If I don’t do this, the planet will die!!’
To give us an idea of just how ignorant these kids are on the so-called ‘climate emergency’, Guardian Australia has helpfully released a video.
Ahead of today's #ClimateStrike, The Guardian asked some primary school kids what they think climate change is. pic.twitter.com/IY2QuwVVAb
“It is making fires in the Arctic where there is supposed to be no fires at all, only snow.”
“Some cows are farting and that’s putting carbon into the atmosphere and that’s bad because the sunlight goes out and can never come back.”

This is wonderful, Jon.
Taya, and all the other schoolchildren taking part, are leading the way and I'll be proud to join them tomorrow.
Please pass on my support and solidarity to your granddaughter. https://t.co/cxUA4A7y9a

Strike to save humanity, and strike for:
Affordable, state of the art public transport
Skilled, well-paid, unionised green jobs
A just, equal, green economy#ClimateStrike

. @GretaThunberg and young people across the world are striking today to demand urgent action on the climate crisis. But they can't do it alone. Whatever your age, we’re all needed to join and support the global #ClimateStrike and make our governments act. pic.twitter.com/5Xk60zsdds
