The students from all over the world went on strike to demand action on climate change. Almost 500 events had been registered to take place on Friday 15 March 2019. #FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15 year old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. This soon went viral and many students and adults began to protest outside of their own parliaments and local city halls all over the world.
Despite the Police photos it was a peaceful protest and the young students should be proud on what they are trying to achieve.
