Green Party co-leader James Shaw assaulted in central Wellington

New Zealand Climate Change Minister James Shaw

Shaw shared a video from the Green Party offices on Friday morning thanking supporters for the messages of support, and noting he would appear at the School Strikes for Climate protest.

"It's one of those where politicians and the country unite in being shocked and angry that in this peaceful, lovely country, we've got this happening to anyone".

"We want our government to understand that there is no planet B", says Rand Abounahia, another one of the strike organizers. Tomorrow we #schoolstrike for our future.

Local students have received a permit to close Lottie Street for the event, which mirrors the February 2018 Students for Action demonstration that drew some 2,000 students and others in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

It follows a similar protest in November, and was inspired by 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, who has been protesting outside of the Swedish parliament every Friday since September.

"Climate change is worse than Voldemort", read one student's handmade sign, referring to the evil wizard in the hugely popular Harry Potter books and films. From there, they will all head to city hall and Province House.

She said there was no indication the attack was linked to Shaw's work or that of the Green Party.

Tim Tebow sent to minors, will start season with Syracuse Mets
The New York Mets will finish spring training with a workout inside Syracuse University's Carrier Dome. In 84 games last season with Double-A Binghamton, Tebow batted.273 with six homers and 36 RBIs.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the attack showed New Zealand couldn't take that for granted.

Willetton Senior High School student Ryan Hunt, 13, said he was striking to save the world.

"That's what we're trying to do: Change the conversation not only about things like the Green New Deal but so much more".

But skipping school has consequences, even when it's for a good cause.

However, it was important for MPs to be able to go about their daily lives without security guards watching over them, they said.

"One time I managed to get in my vehicle and lock it in time and they just kicked the door", Ms Bennett said.

"If they're not panicking about the climate crisis, then they must not understand it", says Hutten. Mr. Shaw, who is Climate Change Minister and whose party is part of the ruling centre-left coalition, was not seriously injured. "It's not something that can be taken lightly".
