A recent wave of climate protests has been sweeping through Australia this past week, including a march through Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall.

The protest was led by student organisations including Socialist Alternative and UQ and QUT student union, who were pushing against major coal and gas projects which they say would greatly exacerbate the effects of climate change.

The Wire’s Nicholas Powell spoke to organisers and protesters about the event and how different generations are reacting to the changes.
