Ryan Kekeris (IUPAT-North America), Chair of North America Regional Youth Committee:
"Climate change is the existential crisis of our time - one that my generation and the generations that follow will be forced to reckon with. It is also not the wealthy that will feel the effects of climate change, but the poor and the working class. As the representatives of those classes, it's imperative that the trade union movement all across the globe make a stand by striking this Friday, March 15."
