Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has demonstrated with several hundred children and teenagers in front of the White House in Washington for more climate protection. "Never give up - we'll go on!" she called to her young colleagues at the end of the meeting. Overall, she stayed in the protest but rather in the background.
Thunberg spends six days in the US capital. The young Swede has criticized Trump's attitude to global warming. She accuses him of ignoring scientific knowledge about global warming. Trump casts doubt on the manmade climate change.
Thunberg arrived in New York at the end of August and since then has participated in a series of actions and meetings in the US. For reasons of climate protection, she traveled across the Atlantic in a sailboat.
In Washington, Thunberg will be awarded a prize by the human rights organization Amnesty International next week. She will also appear in a congressional hearing at the invitation of the opposition Democrats. At the beginning of next week, Thunberg will take part in a climate summit of the United Nations in New York.
