Students around the world are today striking for climate change with marches being held in towns and cities across the globe. Australia has already had there's with thousands coming out to line the streets looking for action against climate change.
Drifting above the crowds were their handmaid placards, some of which excellently incorporated pop culture references to get their point across.

The first of these marches, which are championed by 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, took place earlier in the year in March. In Ireland alone, 15,000 students and young people took to the streets. Today, marches are being held once more all over the country (details of which can be found here), as well in cities around the world with adults being asked to join in too.
