Australia: Tens of thousands flood Melbourne for global climate strike

Australia, Melbourne
September 20, 2019 at 08:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

An estimate of more than 100,000 climate protesters flooded the Australian coastal city of Melbourne on Friday as part of the global climate strike movement ahead of the United Nations Climate Change summit.

The march is one of many taking place in Australia and across the globe with organisers estimating millions of people to turn out in over 150 countries including Germany, the UK, France and the US.

The global movement is partially inspired by youth climate activist Greta Thunberg who began her weekly school strike for climate last year outside the Swedish parliament and has become a global figure inspiring climate activism.
