And so it begins. There are 110 towns and cities taking part in the Global Strike 4 Climate in Australia, with thousands already gathering in capital cities.
They’ve arrived with their best signs, their Earth balls, their kids, their parents, their colleagues and their loudest voices to protest inaction on climate change.
A number of our team from Women’s Agenda were there in Sydney, while we’ve been following what’s occurring across the country and Australia.
