“We are strictly going to follow the six feet social distancing all throughout, trying to avoid direct interactions with people. If we want a future away from other such pandemics and extreme weather events like droughts, floods, cyclones, wildfires, and food/water shortages, WE MUST ACT; AND WE MUST ACT NOW!
Join and raise your voice to #FightClimateInjustice,” stated Deepsri, a 16-year-old Environmentalist & Animal rights advocate, Visakhapatnam.
