This is a powerful speech from early in the day on Friday’s #SchoolStrike4Climate which saw 15,000 students across the UK taking the time out of school to make their voices heard over climate inaction.

Shortly after this speech, students took a spontaneous decision to turn the rally into a march and show of civil disobedience, and they swept up Whitehall and brought much of Westminster to a standstill over the next few hours.

They are planning a bigger walk-out next month on the 15th March, and then will be joining the Extinction Rebellion mass mobilisation on the 15th April – a worldwide economic shut-down.
