Belgians stage walkout to protest inaction on climate change

Student climate change activists staged a large protest in the city center of Brussels, Belgium on Thursday, Jan. 31. Tens of thousands of teenage students walked out of their classrooms to call for government action addressing climate change, holding signs with slogans like “no nature, no future,” and “if the climate were a bank, it would have been saved by now.” The 35,000 student protesters joined a mounting number of demonstrations across Europe.
