Protests that demand more climate controls attract all age groups

 GREAT BARRINGTON — When 12-year-old Digby Kerr
woke up last Friday morning, he told his father he didn’t want to go to school.
But it wasn’t because of a test that he wanted to skip and it wasn’t because he
was worried about a particular class.

Kerr was
worried about the future of the entire planet.

Instead
of school, the Mill
River youth spent the
morning creating a poster — and even got his older sister, 15-year-old Evie
Kerr, to make one as well.

At noon,
Broc Kerr brought his children to the front of Mason Library to join hundreds
of others who had assembled, calling for action on global warming and climate
change.

“This
was all his idea to come here today,” said Broc on Friday, motioning to his
son.

A sea of signs were raised high in the air amid shouts demanding change and protection for the earth as well as some that wanted President Donald Trump to be halted for his actions “as a destroyer of America.”
