Climate Strikes In Iowa This Weekend – Update

globsl climate strike sept. 20 - 27

Due to some not quite full information I gave you all misleading information on the climate strikes that are on board for this coming weekend.    

In the past 3 years protests of various stripes that have been co-ordinated across the country have had a single website or Facebook page that reported where and when the events were taking place across the country. I assumed (let’s hear the old joke) that a website called “Global Climate Strike” was the single point information source for the Climate Strikes this weekend. 

I thought it weird that Iowa would not have any events within its borders. 

At this point I give a huge tip of the hat to reader C. A. who wrote to state that according to the Sierra Club website there are numerous events in and around Iowa this weekend.

So thank you so much, C. A. – and here are the events the Sierra Club has listed: (From northeast to southwest)

    Definitely wish this would have been promoted more. I know a lot of people who would have gone but just didn’t hear about it more.

      That is very true. One of the activist boards I am on just heard about all this a couple of weeks ago. Since this is a world wide event, there may have been some breakdown in co-ordination
