In US news and current events today, 10-year-old Francisco Javier Vera lead more than a dozen kids to march in Villeta, Colombia on Dec 20 in protest of government inaction on the climate crisis. Vera is the leader of the Guardians of Life movement. Just 2 days prior to the protests, Vera spoke on behalf of his group to the Colombian senate pleading them to take action. Since the start of 2019, the Colombian government has increased climate disaster prevention efforts. But Vera says much more needs to be done. Vera says the thing he notices most is a lack of education among both his fellow kids and adults. Vera says he is hopeful the government will increase environmental protection efforts.
