Several protests will be held across the country on Friday as part of the Global Climate Strike.
In Cape Town, protesters have embarked on a protest to Parliament, demanding urgent action.
The African Climate Alliance’s Ruby Sampson said, “There are hundreds of kids here, maybe even a couple of thousands, who are marching to say that we have had enough with the governments lack of a response to the climate crisis. We cannot allow more people to die. “
Sampson said that people were going without water and food due to drought, which is a result of the climate crisis.
She said they want government to respond to a memorandum of demands.
“South Africa and President Cyril Ramaphosa have to declare that we are in a climate emergency and put it publicly that the climate crisis is affecting the future of my generation.”
She said the electricity sector must turn to 100% renewable energy by 2030.
