Students in Melbourne, Australia, on Sunday protested against global warming at the National Climate Action Summit, held by the UN and the World Bank.
The students, led by the organisation Climate Justice Australia, carried banners that read, “Stop global warming, we’re all simply trying to live here”, and “Climate change is a disaster and it needs to stop”.
One student said that the climate change movement was about “the destruction of life and our planet”.
The students also voiced their disapproval of the fact that many of the people involved in the climate justice movement are not Indigenous, a group that is often overlooked in discussions of climate change.
The protest was held in front of the Sydney Opera House.
The protestors also spoke out against the UN’s Climate Summit, which is scheduled to begin on Monday.
The summit aims to address climate change, with the goal of setting a “global framework” for the future.
Organisers say it is the first such event to be held at the UN headquarters in New York City.
The event, which was organized by the Climate Justice Coalition, aims to highlight the issues of climate justice and inequality around the world.
“We need to make sure that we can come together and talk about these issues, and also we need to work together to make our communities stronger,” the student said.
Australia’s Climate Justice Alliance, the student group behind the protest, said in a statement that they “have been working together to bring the climate crisis to the forefront of Australian politics”.
“We have seen our voices heard and we have seen the impact of climate policy being put before the Australian people, in a manner that is not supported by the Australian Government,” the statement said.
Climate Justice Australia was founded in 2009 and aims to “work towards the end of the global warming crisis through climate justice”.
The group says its aim is to “help create a climate change-free world, one where we all live in peace, together, with dignity and respect.”
Australia’s National Climate Policy Forum was also held in New Zealand last year, where attendees were encouraged to address the climate issue in their own way.
