A student march for the climate just went past about 20 minutes ago. The march was peaceful, if noisy — there was a lot of cheering going on — and, according to VRT, they are planning to repeat this every Thursday until they get an adequate response.
Two things struck me. Firstly, pretty much all of the placards were in English. I don’t know if this is a reflection of Belgian multilingualism or if the students are looking for international attention. But it’s interesting to note.
Secondly, the student who walked past in a pair of shorts — in January — made his point very effectively indeed.
