The Best Signs From The Climate Change Rallies Around The World

Activists are getting their messages across with some funny, angry and wittily worded placards.

Millions of protesters are taking to the streets of thousands of cities and towns around the world on Friday to demand urgent action on climate change.

And many ― from Australia, America to Berlin and beyond ― are coming armed with wittily worded signs. Some placards take aim at political figures, including U.S. President Donald Trump. Many lament the current climate crisis. Others pay tribute to 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, whose weekly school strikes in her native Sweden have partly inspired the latest round of demonstrations.
