On Friday, students from around New York City walked out of school to protest government inaction on climate change. A group from the Beacon School in Hell’s Kitchen made their way to Columbus Circle, where they were joined by students from other schools who gathered around the U.S.S. Maine Monument at the entrance to Central Park. The various schools led chants as the crowd walked uptown along Central Park West to the American Museum of Natural History, where the students occupied the museum’s steps. The demonstration broke up around 4 p.m.
