Frustrated Australian climate activist juggles school and a lawsuit
(Reuters, 25 Sep 2020) "I am here because I am fed up with the Australian government's inaction on the climate crisis," activist says at one of 500 planned protests in the country Friday.
Australian school student Ambrose Hayes, 15, rode on a protest barge in Sydney Harbour on Friday holding a huge yellow banner demanding "No Gas" as part of a global climate rally calling for greater action from world leaders.
"I am here because I am fed up with the Australian government's inaction on the climate crisis. We need to act now before it's too late," climate activist Hayes told Reuters TV.
Hayes protest is part of some 500 climate events planned across Australia as part of "Fridays for Future" movement that was made famous by Swedish student Greta Thunberg.
Hayes is one of eight students who have launched a class action to stop the environment minister approving an expansion of a coal mine arguing it will endanger their futures.
