Ardern condemns 'unprovoked' attack that left Climate Change Minister with black eye

Greens Party co-leader James Shaw appeared with his black eye at the climate change strike in Wellington

In it, the Climate Change Minister, sporting a black eye, said, "I just want to take a moment to express my appreciation to all of the people from all over New Zealand, and all around the world, who have sent messages of support over the course of the last 24 hours".

"We don't have the time to wait, that's not a luxury that we have anymore", says 17-year-old Katie Hutten.

Many others, including students in Ireland, have joined Thunberg's crusade by striking every Friday.

"It's one of those where politicians and the country unite in being shocked and angry that in this peaceful, handsome country, we've got this happening to anyone".

In October 2018, the United Nations (UN) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report warning that if carbon emissions continue at the current rate, the Earth will reach a detrimental temperature threshold - 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer than pre-industrial times - by the year 2030. "We need our Earth, we need a home, and we need a good place for the future generations to grow up in".

"The strikes so far have students in a hundred countries confirmed participating around the globe", Carla Galea, the KSU President, said today. From there, they will all head to city hall and Province House.

Ms Ardern condemned the attack, which she said was "unprovoked".

"There is no doubt about it that there are some people who are filled with rage and sometimes they can see politicians as people they can take that out on", she said. There are also students in other parts of the province, including Bridgewater and Amherst, organizing their own walkouts.

"When I saw that (Fridays for Future) was planning to have an inaugural protest in the US on March 15th, I sent out a message to a few friends to see if they wanted to organize a student strike in Bellingham", Gardner said in an email.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern struck a different tone.

"That's what we're trying to do: Change the conversation not only about things like the Green New Deal but so much more".

On Friday, kids across the Garden State will skip school for a global cause.

However, it was important for MPs to be able to go about their daily lives without security guards watching over them, they said.

Gardener said he has been gathering support via word of mouth and the social media apps Snapchat and Instagram.

Teddy Bridgewater reportedly staying with Saints
Taylor is expected to sign with the Los Angeles Chargers to be Phillip Rivers' backup, according to the NFL Network. The Dolphins are in need of a quarterback this upcoming season and Bridgewater is a Miami native.
