Fiji Sun - - Aust/nz News - SBS News

Syd­ney: Ahead of global ac­tion on September 20, Aus­tralia’s Cli­mate Strike move­ment has just wel­comed its first in­sti­tu­tional ally. The Unit­ing Church Synod of New South Wales and the Aus­tralian Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory is of­fer­ing staff the day off - and back­ing its mem­bers, which in­clude some of Syd­ney’s prici­est pri­vate schools, who choose to do the same. Rev­erend Simon Hans­ford told

SBS News that while not all of the Church’s mem­bers supported the strike, he was com­pelled by young stu­dents who feel a state of de­spair over the earth’s fu­ture.
