Greta Thunberg joins march in Madrid

Guterres worked through a long list of climate data to reinforce his message

Guterres worked through a long list of climate data to reinforce his message

6 de diciembre de 2019, 15:19Madrid, Dec 6 (Prensa Latina) Swedish activist Greta Thunberg urged worldwide political leaders here today to act against climate change, and trusted that the Climate Summit (COP25) will adopt specific agreements in the face of global warming.

The main march took place in Madrid on the sidelines of the United Nations climate conference, with a simultaneous rally in the Chilean capital, which had been due to host the 12-day gathering but was forced to pull out due to deadly anti-government protests.

"She transmits energy to other young people and the young people transmit it to other generations like mine", said Sara Pereira, 68, who held a placard saying "Stop Eco-chaos" as Thunberg and other marchers passed.

Speaking at a press conference before the scheduled march was to sweep across downtown Madrid, Thunberg lamented that global schoolchildren's campaigning inspired by her solo protest in Sweden in 2017, "has not translated into action" by governments.

"We need to step out of our comfort zones and that is what we are doing right now".

"We will go to COP25 in Madrid and we will continue the fight there to make sure that within those walls, the voices of the people are being heard", she added.

"Some people are afraid to change - they try so desperately to silence us".

Speaking at a press conference in the Spanish capital on Friday she added that although the movement has raised public awareness of the problem "there is no victory" because Carbon dioxide emissions have continued to rise, Efe news reported.

An official directly involved in the negotiations said that despite a few setbacks, the technical negotiations were progressing, although many concerns were being left for ministerial-level meetings in the summit's second and final week.

Under the Paris Agreement, the successor to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, about 190 signatory countries are aiming to keep global temperatures to "well below" 2 C above preindustrial levels.

The presence in Madrid of Greta is expected to shift the attention to demands for greater action by non-governmental organisations and a whole new generation of environment-minded activists.

Past appearances have won her plaudits from some leaders - and criticism from others who've taken offence at the angry tone of her speeches.

"We can't afford any more days without real action being taken".

'They didn't do it before, and if there is no social pressure, they won't do it, ' she said at the rally.

ITV respond to reports that Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are feuding
Phillip is a much respected broadcaster and colleague and this is absolutely not a description of This Morning that we recognise. Phillip's AP also went to work on Loose Women despite the fact that the pair apparently had a close friendship before that.


"People are suffering and dying from the climate and ecological emergency today and we can not wait any longer", Thunberg told an event at a cultural center, where supporters chanted "We love you Greta".

Thunberg did not appear unsettled by the commotion surrounding her presence. "I do not understand why it has become like this", the 16-year-old was quoted as saying by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, whose reporter rode with them in an electric auto in Madrid.

"I think they are being hypocrites", Nakate said. "If this is a way to write about the climate crisis, then I guess it is good".

"We can't wait any longer", she said.

"And that, regardless of the colour of the government that is in power", Strait said.

More than 3,800 organizations and corporations representing 70% of USA economic output have joined the coalition, organizers claim, amounting to roughly half of the country's emissions.
