Students strike and take to the streets to protest government's inaction on climate change
November 30, 2018 Robert McLean/striking students

Radio National predicted this morning that 6000 students would strike and protest the government's inaction on climate change, but now, late on Friday, November 30, that number is reportedly 15 000,more than double that originally thought to be the high water mark.
The students took to the streets in Australia's state capitals, and many regional centres, directly contravening a "father-like" direction from the PM Scott Morrison that the students needed to stay at school and persist with their learning, rather than concerning themselves with matters that could be dealt with outside the schools.
