Climate change: millions protest worldwide

Millions of young people take part in global climate change protests.

Worldwide demonstrations are held to protest global warming. We hear from the teenager behind the strike, Swedish campaigner Greta Thunberg. Also on the programme: A US Congressman tells us about the controversy surrounding a whistleblower being prevented from speaking; and the American gun manufacturer who is no longer producing its civilian semi-automatic rifles.
