Today 13-year-old Alexandra Villasenor walked out of her school in NYC, answering the call of fellow youth activist Greta Thunberg, and conducted her own School Strike for Climate outside the United Nations Building.
People talked to her, took pictures, encouraged her – until the NYPD removed her from the property.
Undeterred, she relocated in front of the UN flags and continued her strike for the day, where people waved and honked when reading her signs.
#FridaysForTheFuture – a kids walkout every Friday for the climate.
