The strike for climate on 15th March ran in over 120 countries (and in over 2,000 places), with a global estimated attendance of 1.5m. It had an estimated attendance of 20,000 in London (and thousands upon thousands throughout the UK).

It was and is an incredible, inspiring and extremely news-worthy issue, especially as it's been led by young people, organised by young people, but is galvanising adults to pay attention.
The fact that @BBC could barely be bothered to give it any focus in their TV news programmes (in many cases not even mentioned at all) or in online news (see @BbcClimate for its prominence, or lack thereof online) is an absolute disgrace.
The @BBC are not fulfilling a public service. Instead, they are protecting dangerous status quo when expert consensus demands urgent change.
These are their editorial choices. And Friday's example is not just a blip in their coverage. It is part of a consistent pattern of @BBC editorial choices to ignore or keep to the margins, the most important global issue of our time.
@BBC are complicit in the climate crisis. And they are not fit for purpose.
