Marches, rallies and protests took place around the globe Friday, as people demanded world leaders take action against the “climate crisis.”

The world-wide event was partly inspired by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who marched on the United Nations summit happening in New York.

Locally, protests were scheduled at Grass Valley and Nevada City’s city halls.
