CNN reports that thousands of Australian children skipped school on Friday to protest for action on climate change. Organizers estimated that 15,000 students left their classrooms in 30 locations across the country. As the children prepared for three days of organized direct action, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said ” what we want is more learning in schools and less activism.” Two Central Victoria pupils started the “Strike 4 Climate Action.” 14-year-olds Harriet O’Shea Carre and Milou Albrecht, wrote a call to arms asking fellow children to join them in protest, stating: “Just going to school isn’t doing anything about climate change. And it doesn’t seem that our politicians are doing anything, or at least not enough, about climate change either.”
