Protestors made their concerns about the climate heard at Huntsville City Hall on Friday.

They took part in the global climate strike, kicking off a week of events happening around the world.
Dozens of people of all ages held up signs and called for change. They want the city to declare a climate emergency,create an environment and sustainability commission, and offer incentives for families to use renewable energy.

"There's no reason why locally we can't do everything to help a global situation that's going to affect us," Joy Johnson, one of the strike's organizers said.

Organizers say they hope their efforts will get people to take action on climate change.
