Scenes from the National Climate Protest, Melbourne

On the evening of Friday November 10, protests demanding the Australian Government act on climate change were held all around Australia. The protests were organised by Uni Students for Climate Justice.


Melbourne did its bit to bring climate to the forefront of everyone’s minds, starting the day with weather that edged over 30 degrees and ending it with a rainy evening more than 10 degrees cooler.


A sea of protesters with umbrellas marched the streets of Melbourne. Jeremy Gan captured the action.
