Thousands Gather in Paris for Youth 'Climate Strike'

Thousands of youth protesters marched through Paris, France, on Friday, March 15, taking part in a worldwide “climate strike” demanding stronger policies to combat climate change.

Video posted to Twitter shows crowds of protesters chanting in the wide plaza outside Les Invalides.

French media estimate that between 29,000 and 40,000 demonstrators took part in Friday’s march.

The “school strike” movement for climate change action has spread since August 2018, when Greta Thunberg, a Swedish 16-year-old, skipped school and began protesting outside the Swedish parliament.

On March 15, protests began in New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific, before spreading to Asia and Europe later in the day.
