Hundreds of youth and their adult supporters went on strike from Black Friday shopping this Friday to demand federal and local action in response to the climate crisis. Students, adults and organizations from across the Westside and greater Los Angeles region gathered in Santa Monica’s Tongva Park to rally before marching and conducting a “die-in” at the Third Street Promenade, the heart of the city’s shopping district. The event was organized by Food & Water Action, the political advocacy arm of the research and education organization Food & Water Watch.
