Millions of young adults around the world took to the street today in frustration and protest of the lack of action against global climate change. In Seattle, thousands of students, including many from MIHS, marched from Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill to Seattle City Hall. Reporter Brooks Kahsai attended the event, where he took photos and asked fellow protestors for their thoughts on the climate crisis.

This is where we live and we only have one planet. It’s not getting any better.
