Thousands of New Zealand students have marched in New Zealand’s first School Strike 4 Climate protest since Covid-19 hit.

In Christchurch, students and older protesters took their demands to mayor Lianne Dalziel. They had marched from Cathedral Square to the Civic building with local ideas.

In Auckland, more than 1000 students marched up Queen Street chanting: “Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Climate change has got to go.”

Most of the crowd were students and many held placards demanding a change in attitudes to stop global warming.

Finally in Wellington, about 4000 students listened to speakers in an open mic session outside Parliament.

Climate Change Minster James Shaw met with the students, who marched from Civic Square to the steps of Parliament.
