Activist Speeches

A young girl is saying with her face 'Save our planet', during the protest. Tens of thousands of kids in more than 60 countries went on strike to demand climate change action. #FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. In Brussels, not just students, but teachers, scientists, and several syndicates took the streets of the Belgian capital for the second time, to protest for better climate policy. According to the Belgian police around 7500 people took the streets of Brussels, in the last climate demonstration before the EU elections.
