On Monday, March 31st, eight Worcester State students joined some 200 other Massachusetts college and high school students in the Youth Walkout for Climate Justice at the State House in Boston.

The purpose of the rally, sponsored by Students for a Just and Stable Future, was to call on Governor Patrick to ban all new fossil fuel infrastructure in Massachusetts.

The Governor’s office did agree to schedule a meeting with SJSF, 350Ma and the Better Future Project to discuss the students’ demands.
