NEW YORK (AP) A wave of climate change protests swept the globe Friday, with hundreds of thousands of young people sending a message to leaders headed for a U.N. summit: The warming world cant wait for action.
Marches, rallies and demonstrations were held from Canberra to Kabul and Cape Town to New York.
The Global Climate Strike events ranged from a gathering of about two dozen activists in Seoul using LED flashlights to send Morse code messages calling for action to rescue the earth to Australia demonstrations that organizers estimated were the countrys largest protests since the Iraq War began in 2003.
