Students hold global climate change protests

STORY: Hundreds of demonstrators and environmentalists took the streets in their capital cities on Friday (September 23) to demand action on climate change, joining global protests as part of the student-led “Fridays for Future” movement.

In New Zealand, Green Party leader James Shaw told the crowd: "If anybody tells you that your voice doesn't count and that you're too young to make a difference, do not believe them. It is because of young people that we even have the Zero Carbon Act in this country, that's because of you and people like you all around the country."

Similar protests are set to be held in Britain and Brazil.
