Millions join global Climate Strikes

21 September 2019

Millions of people around the world held a global climate strike on Friday, inspired by activist Greta Thunberg.

Protesters across continents waved placards and chanted slogans in what could be the biggest ever demonstration over global warming caused by humans.

“Our house is on fire”, Ms Thunberg said at a rally. “We will not just stand aside and watch.”

The day began in the Pacific and Asia and culminated in a massive demonstration in New York.

It comes ahead of a UN summit next week at the organisation’s headquarters in Manhattan. Activists are demanding greater efforts be made at the meeting to tackle climate change.
