Thousands of people marched through the streets of Lausanne on Saturday urging political action against climate change in the fourth national demonstration organised in the Swiss city.

Fewer people attended compared to previous marches, which drew around 10,000 demonstrators, but participants on Saturday said they were determined to march until their demands are met. Demonstrators hope to push the environment and climate change higher up the political agenda with federal elections scheduled in Switzerland later this year.
