Climate activist Greta Thunberg joined hundreds of demonstrators at a strike in Stockholm on Friday, demanding sweeping reforms to address the climate crisis.

Among the protesters was 9-year-old elementary school pupil Aditri Das, who chose to skip school to join the demonstration.

Aditri said that she wants politicians to hear her voice as she feels left out by them in this climate crisis.

"We need the adults to listen, not only for kids but for their kids and for their futures," the 9-year-old said.

Aditri’s father, who also participated in the strike, expressed his support for her decision to skip class, emphasizing that participating in climate strikes can provide valuable lessons as important as those learned in school.
