Scene nearby: Edmonds residents among those participating in climate ‘die-in’

Members of Edmonds-based Interfaith Climate Action were among a group of nearly 300 people participating Friday in a Climate Strike “Die-In” outside the Snohomish County Administration Building in Everett.

“The courthouse bell tolled at noon and people lay down, many with signs indicating how they were killed due to a climate event,” said Gayle Leberg of Interfaith Climate Action, which includes members from Edmonds United Methodist, Holy Rosary and Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
According to participants, the die-in lasted 11 minutes, representing the 11 years scientists say major action must be taken to address climate change before it will be too late.
The event was held to support the global Youth Climate Strike.
