As environmentalists throughout the world demanded immediate action to address the fossil fuel caused global warning crisis, Oakland's kids had a specific demand. Their large banner said "No to Coal, Yes to Life."
After speeches they marched to Oakland's central police station, shouted their demands and had a brief "sit in."
Grade school kids paced the march with their drums.
The action was led by "Youth vs Acopalypse" with other groups such as "1000 Grandmothers" participating.
