Children worldwide are going on strike. They are unhappy. Their countries are not fighting climate change. Students are not going to class. They are protesting in the streets and outside governments. The strikes began in August 2018. A Swedish student protested and photos of her went viral on social media. Students are now copying her.
In 2019, there have been strikes in Europe, America and Australia. Students held banners reading, "Why learn without a future?" There is a worldwide strike on March 15. Not everyone supports the students. Australia's leader called for "more learning in schools and less activism". A journalist told students to strike at the weekend.
