A visual account of the largest climate protest in history.

Wow - that was big wasn’t it - an estimated 4 million people took to the streets last Friday for the Global Strike For Climate. It is thought to be the biggest climate protest in history. 

And what a day!

Here on our home turf of Australia

An estimated 300, 000 turned out for the strikes in Australia; 20 000 showed up in Hobart (total population is 200,000), 100,000 or so in Melbourne!

Led by the youth movement Fridays4Future all started by Greta Thunberg just over a year ago. They have been demanding climate action from the world’s leaders and this time - the adults were invited to join in too. 

We’ve compiled 15 great images from around the world so you get a flavour of the creativity, humour and poignancy they were striking for.
