Greta Thunberg Demonstrates For Climate Crisis Brandenburg Gate


News Swedish activist Greta Thunberg Demonstrates For Climate Crisis:


In Berlin-Mitte, the Swede protested with a few dozen other demonstrators for more commitment in the climate crisis - with a corona-related distance.


Climate activist Greta Thunberg has moved her weekly climate protest to Berlin during a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.


The 17-year-old Swede sat down in front of the Brandenburg Gate on Friday morning together with a few dozen other demonstrators with corona-related distance from each other in order to emphasize their demand for more action against the climate crisis.


Her German colleague Luisa Neubauer and the Belgians Anuna de Wever and Adélaïde Charliér were also there, as shown by pictures that Greta Thunberg shared on Twitter and Instagram.


Greta Thunberg, Neubauer, de Wever and Charliér met with Merkel on Thursday in the Chancellery to exchange views on climate policy.


According to government spokesman Steffen Seibert, the main topic was the climate policy priorities in Germany's current EU Council Presidency.


Usually, Greta Thunberg protests in front of the Swedish parliament every Friday in her hometown Stockholm for a more determined fight against the climate crisis.


The international climate movement Fridays for Future emerged from the protest action they began two years ago and has found numerous supporters, especially in Germany.


In the past, Greta Thunberg had also participated in various climate protests in other European and American cities, including Berlin and Hamburg.


In the past few months, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, she had held her “school strike for the climate” exclusively at home in Stockholm.
