Great links: A Gallery of Youth-Made Climate-Strike Signs

The New Yorker, amplifying the efforts of Mmuseumm, published a gallery of signs used in the recent wave of record-breaking youth climate strikes around the world. (Those strikes are known as Fridays for Future, Youth for Climate and other labels and they come with social-media-friendly hashtags to help promote the needed movement.)

I am featuring a couple of the signs here, in hopes you'll check out The New Yorker piece and also Mmuseumm, which I hadn't known about before this post. It's pretty amazing. According to its website, "Mmuseumm is a style of storytelling about the modern world. It is Object Journalism. It is a new type of museum, expanding in a network of expected and unexpected locations, dedicated to exploring modern humanity and current events through revealing objects from around the world."

Category titles for Mmuseumm objects include "Personal Items of Immigration: Lost in the Arizona Desert" and "Objects Made by Prisoners or for Prisoners in United States Prisons."
