Who runs the world? Young people!
The crowds in Dublin City for the climate change strike were absolutely massive today! Thousands of people around the city but also the whole country are taking part in strikes to demand change of attitude from the government towards climate issues!
Students from schools and colleges across Ireland took off to the streets in order to support the movement.
“Today we strike alongside these people globally to ensure one thing, our future,” the 14-year-old student said.
Protests have been taking place today in Dublin, Cork, Waterford, Galway, Louth as well as other areas around the country.

The biggest environmental march ever in Dublin (and my first) was 20,000 to “Save Wood Quay” in September 1978. I think the #ClimateStrike surpassed that today. Our movement is growing and we won’t stop until @LeoVaradkar and @RichardbrutonTD act like it’s a #ClimateEmergency. pic.twitter.com/XkD8VvbxfE
