Students stage global protest to speak out on climate change inaction

Students in cities worldwide skipped classes Friday to protest their governments’ failure to act against global warming as part of the “Fridays for Future” movement. The event was inspired by youth activist Greta Thunberg, who began holding solitary demonstrations outside the Swedish parliament last year.
