Members of Greener is Cleaner joined the Global Climate Strike in South Korea organized by Youth 4 Climate Action Korea. Although it rained initially, the event was held successfully, with numerous young climate advocates striking, speaking up, singing, dancing, and performing. In the end, we delivered a letter request for greater climate action on behalf of all youth participants to the presidential office. The slogan 'We also see a crisis' contains the meaning that we can define and face the crisis in our own way. It is a slogan that reveals the subjectivity that we can tell our own story rather than being represented by others. And ‘we’ here means us in an inclusive sense, not merely as a person or merely as a minority or a specific victim. The strike at Yongsan to the presidential office is to show that we are beings who can speak up at any time. It is not about giving someone a chance; it's about constantly knocking on the door.
