In Edinburgh and Glasgow, Thousands strike for climate action

KONFRONTASI -  Thousands of young people are expected to take part in school strikes across Scotland and around the world to demand urgent action on climate change.

They are the latest in a series of strikes started a year ago by 16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg.

The protests have now spread across 150 countries, with Friday's action billed as the largest so far.

Events are planned in all of Scotland's major cities, many towns and some islands including Iona and Skye.
