Dutch Students March for Better Climate Policies

Thursday, 07 February 2019 05:38 AM

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Thousands of students are skipping classes to join a march in support of more ambitious climate policies in the Netherlands.

The demonstration Thursday by Dutch students follows similar marches in recent weeks in neighboring Belgium that have drawn thousands of protesters.

Organizers say they want to send a wake-up call to politicians in the Netherlands who are wrestling with how best to rein in greenhouse gas emissions.

The Dutch Environmental Assessment Agency said in a report last month a court-set target of reducing emissions by 25 percent from 1990 levels by 2020 is "out of reach."

A group of about 350 scientists and researchers published an open letter in support of the march, saying it is "high time for tough measures to quickly and drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions."
