Around 500,000 people marched with Swedish teenage activist Greta Thunberg at a climate strike in Montreal on Friday.

Thunberg led the march with her original sign calling for a school strike, before giving a speech from on stage.

"We will never stop fighting for the living planet and for a safe future, for our future," Thunberg said to an applauding crowd.

The march comes after last week's global action, with 150 countries reportedly taking part. It follows a series of school strikes initially inspired by the climate activist.
