AlwaysExcited posted a topic in Quiver Full of PoliticsSearched for this but couldn't find anything so I decided to start a thread. March 15th strike had about 1.4 million participants in all continents and more than 100 countries, Greta has been nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, and movement is far from over, so we will hear a lot about this in near future.
