This video says about itself:
School strikes were held across Australia today, 15 March 2019, but it was the students, not the teachers, leading the charge. The strikes were held to demand more meaningful climate action from the government; something the organising students believe to be truly lacking.
In Sydney, thousands of students congregated at Town Hall Square to demand more action on the world’s climate change disaster. Students then marched to Hyde Park through the city streets, many of which were closed down for the march. It’s the second nationwide strike since November 2018 and there’s no sign of them stopping anytime soon.
Australia joins 111 other countries who have taken up the charge in the name of climate action. Sydney’s rally organiser, Jean Hinchliffe told Student Edge at November’s march that students would keep striking and making their voices heard until the government takes real action to curb the effects of climate change. “We’re definitely not stopping here; there’s a lot to organise from here,” Jean said.
