September 20th to 27th was recognised as the Global Climate Strike week across the world. Inspired by 16 yo climate activist Greta Thunberg, students and citizens across the globe took to the streets on these days to ask their governments to declare a climate emergency.
India saw a major wave of climate strikes across various cities including Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Dharamshala and several others. School children, environmentalists and people of all ages showed up for the environment with concrete demands. Here are some pictures from the climate strikes Jhatkaa (and other partner organisations) organised in Bangalore, Mumbai, Dharamshala and Jaipur.
