SCRIPT
Thousands of people joined a global climate strike in the Chilean capital Santiago on Friday.
Schoolchildren and workers marched past La Moneda presidential palace to demand action from government.
Demonstrators dressed in green and brought a series of homemade signs and banners to argue for their cause.
The strike in Chile was one of many taking in Latin American cities and across the world.
The global action follows a series of school strikes initially inspired by Swedish teenage and climate activist Greta Thunberg.
