The protests erupting in the USA after the police killing of George Floyd is part of the fight against climate change and for social justice that unites us all according to controversial teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg said on Friday.
When asked about any connection between her school strike movement and U.S. protests against racism.”We need to stand united and remember that the fight for social justice, environmental justice, racial justice and climate justice is the same fight.”
The 17-year-old Swede is known for castigating world leaders for inaction on climate change but confronted with nationwide protests in the U.S. and the coronavirus pandemic, she has widened her message.
She has also called on the EU to take action and condemn the USA saying: “Still waiting for the EU and individual democratic nations to officially condemn the police brutality and attacks on the free press escalating the USA,” Thunberg said in a tweet Friday. “For how long are we going to stand by, watch and say nothing?”
