The march of Greta
After accusing the world's greats of continuing to make vain promises, young people take to the streets in Glasgow to urge them to act. "So far we have heard many words. With these protests we want to put pressure on those in power and we know that this movement must grow to achieve the changes we need to protect people and present and future generations," commented the Ugandan activist Vanessa Nakate.
Inspired by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, millions of young people took to the streets around the world in 2019 to call on their leaders to take faster and more radical action against global warming.
After the suspension due to the pandemic, the Friday demonstrations are back.
Today in Glasgow is also the day of Greta's Fridays for Future who pointed the finger: "This is no longer a climate conference. It's a greenwashing festival. Two weeks of business celebration and just bla bla bla".
# COP26 has been named the must excluding COP ever.
This is no longer a climate conference.
This is a Global North greenwash festival.
A two week celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah.

He will not march alongside the young activist, Prince Charles, known for his contribution to the fight against climate change, who declined Greta's invitation. His participation is '' difficult '', said the Prince of Wales, adding that he shares the "frustration" of the younger generations. Speaking at COP26, the prince addressed the young people, saying that the "weight of history" weighs on their shoulders. Speaking of the '' great march, which some people think I should join '', Prince Charles told world leaders to '' don't forget the people out there. Don't forget it's their future '', listen to them '' anger and frustration ''.
Also on Saturday there will be climate demonstrations in Glasgow and around the world. "For ten years, storms in the Pacific have been more severe, longer droughts and floods stronger. Fishermen can no longer feed their families. This is what I walk for," says Brianna Fruean, who arrived from Samoa with the Pacific Climate Warriors. "We refuse to be just victims of this crisis. We are not drowning, we are fighting, and on Saturday the world will listen to us."
The 2015 Paris Agreement aims to limit global warming to well below + 2 ° C, if possible + 1.5 ° C, to avoid the worst climate impacts. Each additional tenth of a degree has its share of consequences. But, according to the latest UN estimates, the world is heading towards a "catastrophic" warming of +2, 7 ° C.Keywords:
