Climate Strike at KCC

Millions took the streets across the world on Sept. 20 to protest against government inaction on climate change. Kaua‘i did it its part, by organizing the Kaua‘i Global Climate Strike. The event kicked off at Kaua‘i Community College at 1 p.m. About 150 people of all ages waved hand-made signs to the traffic, before gathering at the nearby pavilion to hear public speakers, including the youth. From there, many biked to the rotunda by the Mayor’s Office in Lihu‘e, where Mayor Derek Kawakami and the Kaua‘i County Council shared a Climate Action Pledge.
