U.S. Youth Are Planning A Rally In Washington To Protest Climate Inaction

Hundreds of U.S. youth are planning to skip school to join a rally in Washington on Friday, says Reuters.

Organizers are calling it an international Youth Climate Strike to seek action on climate change.

One 12-year-old organizer said, "So many kids are finally going to be able to have their voices heard, so many adults are going to finally wake up.” Organizers expect some 2,500 students to join the event in front of the Capitol Building.

Similar rallies are also planned in 46 states.
