The student march began at noon in Centennial Square and moved through downtown streets.
For the fourth time since the first Global Climate Strike in March, youth and adult allies gathered in the millions in cities and towns around the world sounding the alarm on rising greenhouse gas emissions and calling for immediate and rapid action to end fossil-fuel extraction and eliminate carbon emissions.
About 1,000 climate strikers gathered in Victoria stopped at BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources at Blanshard and Herald streets – blocking traffic for half an hour.
Organizers draped the building with large banners calling for an end to fracking and LNG extraction.
