Queen’s, Memorial students gather for climate strike


Last week, students and faculty from Queen’s University and Memorial University joined protestors from around the world in a series of rallies that drew attention to the adverse impacts of climate change. A protest in Kingston, co-organized by Queen’s Backing Action on Climate Crisis and Seniors for Climate Action Now!, called on all of Canada’s biggest investors to cut back on fossil fuels and look to renewable energy instead. At Memorial, students and community members gathered at the campus clock tower and marched to the Confederation Building. In a series of speeches, performances, and poetry, the protesters demanded that Memorial divest its holdings in fossil fuels.
