Children approx. 10-15 years old protest outside the Old Treasury Building (an old sandstone building). They are leaning over and standing on the balustrade holding up signs against Climate Change and Adani coal mine. Many of the sentiments call for the government to listen to young people. It is a bright sunny day.

Explore the development of democratic processes in Victoria and the ways in which various rights were established and protected. Consider the way everyday people have used their voice for change in ‘Protest Melbourne’.
