Hundreds of children from 12 Islington protested against the inertia of adults in tackling climate change on Friday, February 14.
The children protested outside the town hall in Upper Street.
Miranda Irwin, who helps organise the Islington school strikes, told the Gazette: "It was really good, it was very moving and powerful to see them all singing together and hear their speeches.
"They were singing about wanting people in power to listen and make change - and that big businesses need to save their futures."
Reflecting on the fact it was the biggest Islington school strike yet, she added: "I think it's good but it's sad that the change isn't happening. It's good to include more children but if the change were happening they wouldn't be there."
