As it happened: School Strike 4 Climate march across country

Hundreds of students across the country are protesting climate inaction on Friday.

School Strikes 4 Climate is holding marches in 20 cities and towns across New Zealand to "raise awareness about the urgent need for climate action and to demand meaningful policy changes to combat the climate crisis". 

Other groups taking part in the marches include Toitū Te Tiriti and Palestine Solidarity Network Aotearoa.

The protests are expected to cause delays to commuters and public transport in the main cities.
