Katherine Isobel Garda
I'm Katherine Isobel Garda. I’m hunger striking because I'm hungry for change. I know we need to find a new way forward. This climate crisis, it’s completely obvious, it's staring us in the face. Alarm bells are going off and it's time to wake up. And I feel I have woken up, I can never go back to sleep again. We are damaging this world beyond repair.
I feel for young people, because I think they see it as it is and they look at the world and it causes them such anxiety. It's awful it's come to this, that they have to stand up and say ‘What are you doing?!’ I've heard that cry, I've heard that call, because I care about my children and I care about the future.
There is a system change that has to take place. To those in government positions: You must speak out! You must tell the truth, however bleak it is. We've got to act on every level now, and you've got to involve the people otherwise they won't go with you.
