March 15, 2019: Hour 1Play
At least 49 people are dead after shooters opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday. Authorities charged one person, detained three others and defused explosive devices in what appeared to be a carefully planned attack. Also, students around the world on Friday are cutting class to call attention to climate change. The mass demonstration was inspired by the teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who started a weekly "school strike for climate" last year in Sweden. Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with two high school students who are organizing the efforts in Lexington, Kentucky. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's March 15, 2019 full broadcast.
