Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Protest in a pandemic: voices of young climate activists” – below is their description.

From flooding the streets with thousands of activists to mass Zoom calls, Twitter storms and isolation, young protesters have had to adapt to a global pandemic and find new ways to push forward their calls for action on the climate crisis.

We spoke to six ‘school strikers’, all members of Fridays for Future, about the impact the pandemic and social distancing have had on their movement, and what the future could hold for their protests after more than a year of Covid-19
