Hundreds of thousands of young people from around the world take to the streets in a global climate protest. They believe that the promises made during the United Nations General Assembly, where world leaders presented their climate agendas for next year, are just empty promises.
On United Kingdom for example, more than 40 protesters have blocked the main road from the port of Dover and in the Czech Republic hundreds of students gathered on Friday in a square in Prague.
Klara Belickova at the age of 16 is a spokesperson for Fridays for Future in the Czech Republic. “__We believe that the Czech government and citizens are not doing enough to fight climate change. And today we want to ask the next government to have a priority, and the priority must be the fight against climate change,” he highlights.
Hana Hudezicova is another of the young protesters and points out: “The climate crisis is the most important problem of our time. And I think it is important to demonstrate, that we are listened to and that it is seen that we are concerned.”
On Roma protesters gathered in a downtown square and marched with flags and banners through the streets of the heart of the city. As in Madrid, where protesters demanded justice in the face of the climate emergency.
They showed their support for the complaint presented to the Supreme Court that has already collected more than 48,000 adhesions due to the lack of commitment and ambition, they say, of the Spanish Executive.
