Ahead of the UN climate talks in Madrid, a global youth climate strike last Friday drew hundreds of thousands of participants calling for more radical action.

Protesters took to the streets in cities including Mumbai, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Frankfurt and Bangkok where they staged “die-ins” and demanded more action.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and two other young strike organizers wrote in an op-ed published Friday that last week’s march was to “call out [the] hypocrisy” of world leaders meeting at COP who “do nothing” to “tackle the climate crisis.”
