School Strike 4 Climate began with Greta Thunberg skipping school to protest the ‘climate emergency.’ The movement went global, with students across the globe skipping class in order to fight climate change.

It appears School Strike 4 Climate has hit a crossroads. A New Zealand chapter recently shut itself down to to it being an overwhelmingly white movement. Is this the beginning of the end for School Strike 4 Climate? We’ll find out!

I really do not understand the concept of loathing the skin with which you were born. It has nothing to do with who a person is, ethics, morality, beliefs, etc.

While I agree with the sentiments expressed here that the issue (if important) should transcend colour, let’s not leap to the conclusion that the closing of a ‘white’ chapter in Auckland NZ means that they have all packed up their tents and taken up another woke issue.
No. their press release (and as was reported in NZ media) stated that they would disband and seek to join a properly constituted diverse climate strike movement. Their was less detail about when and how this was to be formed but clearly such detail would not come from this ‘white’ group.
Time will tell is another ‘diverse’ movement arises.

Other climate issues are causing more impact in NZ ATM. The Governments EV subsidy that normal people actually have to pay directly from their pocket (rather than from taxes) has caused much more concern. EVs are too expensive for the majority of people to buy and do not cut it in range. Even then, people need a car to drive a real distance, certainly on holiday, and the costs of 2 extra nights away just to charge up will not please anyone.
Farmers (where we as a country earn most of our money) have complained that their utes (pick ups in Americanish) need towing and carrying capacity and range and there are no EV utes yet. The Government just said that these will “come soon” so you farmers just have to suck it up in the mean time.

I predict a rising backlash (ballot box?) simply as this hits directly in the pocket and is not the hidden climate tax we all have has to date.

Yes, diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment), not limited to racism, sexism, ageism, denies individual dignity, individual conscience, intrinsic value, and normalizes color blocs (e.g. the racist designation “people of color”), color quotas (e.g. Jew privilege, White privilege), and affirmative discrimination. Also, the democratic/dictatorial duality. One step forward, two steps backward.

That said, diversity of individuals, minority of one. Baby Lives Matter

A poorly considered campaign: kids out of school separates them from their primary source of indoctrination, and deprives those same (primarily white) teachers of their incomes. And of course, think of the motivation: “Stay out of school, children, and you, too, can grow(?) up(?) to be just as angry, demented, and useless as Greta.” And of course, there are all those fuel-saving, non-power-using activities you can do when you’re not in school.

The other point is that you can only skip school when you are enrolled in school in the first place.

Leave school, either sideways into the workforce or out the top by ‘finishing’, and you have nothing to strike against.

This is like ‘Youth Issues’ and the ‘Youth Vote’ that parties like The Greens here in Australia like to claim are vital and need to be respected. Actually no, they don’t. Youth are only youth until they age. Once they become ‘adult’ they start to look back and ‘youth’ and develop a dislike for the spoiled little idiots.

The fact that Greta is no long ‘one of us’ isn’t helping either.

Good. It looks like non-white people are the only ones capable of leading this movement, meaning white folks can go back to normal fossil fuel and maybe nuclear energy needs.
And if anyone expects the vast majority of non-white folk across the globe to start cutting back on their energy usage, good luck with that.
This could put the whole green movement out of business.
But don’t worry. Liberal, woke white folk will rescue it from it’s near certain death and try again to foist this nonsense on the rest of us. I mean, if the world’s temperature increases by 3 degrees, instead of it being -15 in Fairbanks, AK in the Winter, it would be -12. What a disaster!!!!

Most Left on Left conflict revolves around leadership.

Lefts are driven – rightly or wrongly – by the fact they know what is best and if only they were in charge they could use these skills to make the world a better place.

Important words are ‘in charge’.

This is why Leftie groups tend to fragment. It is not they their core beliefs are different, it is leadership.

In my view this has less to do with Woke Issues and more with the fact the people involved weren’t allowed to hold the leadership positions.

Since this article is about race, let me just say Happy Juneteenth to all Americans. We are celebrating this day nationally for the first time, although it has been held officially in Texas for decades and observed by people across the nation.

Juneteenth was the day that Black Slaves in Texas learned that the Republicans had finally managed to free them from slavery.

“this whiteness issue seems a bit privileged”

This climate change”issue” is privileged.
Climate change alarmism is an extension of white guilt.
Where it is now necessary to “check your privilege” while complaining about climate change, the left eat their own
Love it haha

I reckon it might implode even faster if A few more parents developed a backbone And sued the schools for allowing their children out without parental permission. My niece was supposedly going to school at the last climate strike in Australia and her mother spotted her from her office window. Consequences for said niece have not been pretty. School is also not enjoying the process as she went to school and then went to join the strike without a parent’s permission note. Since the school’s policy is that children cannot go off the school grounds during the day without permission from the parents in writing, and parents will be advised by telephone if the children so leave, and neither happened, the school is dealing with a very angry lawyer mother. I’m quite enjoying the process.

This is not Gretas movement. It is astroturfing run by the usual mob of SJW NGOs
I was curious about the Australian chapter of schoolstrike for climalte because of its distinct inter sectional vibe of women who prefer comfortable shoes.

Who is behind the contact number given here – https://www.schoolstrike4climate.com/contact

What a surprise the the contact number leads to onewoman project founder Madeline Price and I was not at all surprised to find this in the Guardian.
