Global climate change strike hits Madison streets

Around the world Friday, massive protests from students and workers demanding action on climate change.

Chants for action all over the country were joined by voices in Madison, as dozens of students from East High School shut down a portion of East Washington Avenue to encourage action on climate change.

“The East students care about what is happening with climate change and we are demanding our lawmakers to take action now,” Lydia Hester, one of the senior student organizers, said. “If they don’t take action we’ll vote them out.”

The students on their lunch break spent around 10 minutes chanting and writing messages in chalk on the street.
