Global Climate Strike

Along with hundreds of students, trade unionists and green activists, Leicester NEU was delighted to be able to support the Global Climate Strike on 20th September. The Leicester event was only one of many across the region, the country and the world.

Unfortunately, we have heard that some students have been disciplined for taking part in previous climate strikes. It seems ironic that we encourage students to express opinions, think for themselves and become active citizens, but then tell them off when they try to do so. Leicester NEU urges all teachers and members of leadership in schools and colleges to support students taking this action.
