GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKE
Global Climate Strike demonstrations inspired by teenage Swedish activist Greta Thunberg took place ahead of the UN climate summit in New York and kicked off in Australia & other countries around the Asia/Pacific rim on Friday.
In over 150 countries, people are stepping up to support young climate strikers and are demanding an end to the age of fossil fuels.
As young people across the planet march on cities to demand action, those in nations already suffering the dire impact of environmental catastrophe have added their voices to calls for urgent action.
Young people in the Solomon Islands, Marshall Islands & Kiribati also demonstrated on Friday with children joining in chanting 'We are not sinking, we are fighting'.
They did not take to the streets like other young global climate protestors across the world, they symbolically took to the seas.
