It’s 2pm in Auckland yet it feels like the sun is about to set. An eerie, dark orange tinted sky filled with smoke from the bushfires over 2000km away. Climate Change Knows No Borders

I care about the because not only will it cause irreparable harm to our planet, it will disproportionately affect the poor and more marginalised in our society - those of us with more privilege have a duty to fight for . Why do you march?
