AMAZON CLIMATE REBEL/ACTIVIST GRETA THUNBERG (Sweden)
As we might remember in 2015 in Paris, France, and under UN flag 175 countries gathered to sign an agreemend. Read more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Agreement.
But now, 4 years later, no political change was made let alone a diminishing of the global warming.
So amazons climate schoolgirl warriors went to the street to protest.
The climate schoolstrikes and raleys in the E.U. started with the 16 year old Greta Thunberg from Sweden.
September 1th 2018 striked from class to fight the climate crisis following
Sweden’s hottest summer ever. She decided to go on a school strike at the
parliament to get politicians to act.

Why bother to learn anything in school if politicians won’t pay attention to the facts?
This simple realisation prompted Greta Thunberg to protest in the most effective way she knew. She is on strike, refusing to go to school until Sweden’s general election on 9 September to draw attention to the climate crisis.Her protest has captured the imagination of a country that has been struck by heatwaves and wildfires in its hottest summer since records began 262 years ago.Every day for two weeks, Thunberg has been sitting quietly on the cobblestones outside parliament in central Stockholm, handing out leaflets that declare: “I am doing this because you adults are shitting on my future.”
Not much later about 1000 schoolgirls followed her example in Stockholm and also striked from school and ralleyed.

Greta Thunberg starts an avalance of schoolstrikes and climate ralleys
throughout Western Europe.Rebel/climate activist Greta Thunbenberg says to the thousands in Denmark: 'We
Can't Save the World by Playing by the Rules Because the Rules Have to Change.The
politics that's needed to prevent the climate catastrophe doesn't exist today,"
she says. "We need to change the system

There are no politics to change that. There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground, so we can't save the world by playing by the rules because the rules have to change. Everything needs to change and it has to start today," declared the Swedish teenager, who traveled to the capital city of her nation's Nordic neighbor for Saturday's massive march."A lot of people say that Sweden or Finland are just small countries and that it doesn't matter what we do," Thunberg added. "But I think that if a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school for a few weeks, imagine what we could do together if we wanted to."
Thunberg garnered international media attention. Now that the election has passed, Thunber and others who have joined the strike return to school for four days each week but still protest on Fridays."We young people don't have the vote, but school is obligatory," Thunberg told The Local in August. "So this a way to get our voices heard."
At her "now-famous" protest spot and in interviews with the press, Thunberg has stuck to the same message she delivered Saturday about the necessity of a rapid global shift away from fossil fuels and toward sustainable energy sources."I think the election didn't matter," she said to The New Yorker about Sweden's latest batch of political races. "The climate is not going to collapse because some party got the most votes. The politics that's needed to prevent the climate catastrophe—it doesn't exist today. We need to change the system, as if we were in crisis, as if there were a war going on."Thunberg's recent actions have been celebrated by climate activists including 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben, who highlighted the march and thanked the teen for her leadership in a tweet on Saturday: The thousands of people who participated in Saturday's "The Time to Act is Now!" demonstration are demanding that politicians from all of Finland's parties commit to cutting off subsidies for fossil fuels by 2020 and totally outlawing dirty energy by 2035, according to the local chapter of Greenpeace, which helped organize the event.Helsinki University researcher Tero Toivonen told Yle News that the unexpectedly high turnout for the demonstration—which featured a march from Helsinki's Senate Square to the parliament building—suggests that the public is starting to realize the urgency of the climate crisis."Everyone has joined in the demand that something needs to be done now. We are definitely seeing more talk like this from the politicians," he said.
The demonstration comes on the heels of a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—the United Nations' leading body for climate science—detailing what the world could look like if the global temperature rises to 1.5°C and underscoring the need for "rapid, far-reaching, and unprecedented" efforts worldwide to prevent "climate catastrophe."
timeline January. 10th - February 26th 2019
Anuna de Wever
followed the example of Thunberg initiated the schoolstrikes in Belgium.
Schoolgirls on every thursday went on a schoolstrike, and in about 6 weeks
approx. 130.000 other schoolgirls joined her and Thunberg.On the last
schoolstrike on February 07th. which took place in Brussels; Antwerpen and
Leuven - amazon schoolgirls; schools; teachers and kids joined the amazon
warriors as well as 320 scientists.
Also king Phillipe supported them with a speech on radio and tv saying we cannot let them fight alone.This in contradiction to most political parties of which the extreme rightwing NVA, and the one with the most votes, saying these schoolgirls should just mind their own bussiness and go to school.
January 31th 2019: schoolgirls in Flanders Brussels and Wallonia in Liege united on a rallye with in total 12.700 school strikers. On February 2 nd. Joke Schauvliege, Flemisch minister of environment, nature and agriculture, and member of the CD&V (cristian democrats and flemisch) had the anual meeting with the agriculture sector where she said these ralleys were a betrayal and a complot and above all a danger for national security basing this on the fact that she had received up to 6000 emails/sms. The day after she had to apolize, still, the damage was done and she had to step down. But Wouter Beke, chairman of the CD&V says that Greenpeace and other extreme left organisations hijacked the amazon school /climate strikers. "One cannot deny that certain extreem left points of vieuw clearly are visible". Still the elections are nearing and already the party is falling apart. On February13th. the minister that replaced Schauvliege declared that the cattle farmers could not be blamed because of cow- and sheep dung that causes an increase of CO2.
However, diid you know that the meatproduction causes 14,5 % of the CO2? Well, it's clear he did'nt pay attention at school. Chief editor.
On February 10th. 300 highschool students at the hortlcurele school in Malden and out of protest against the increase of CO2 planted 1000 trees. On February 14th. and for the sixth Thursday in row there was again a climate schoolstrike and ralley, this time in Brussels and with 11.000 protesters. Already they announced that on the 21th. they will strike/ralley again now accompanied by Greta Thunberg from Sweden. In any case they will strike and ralley untill the elections in May and most likely beyond. On February 21th. there was again a school strike and ralleys, this time in Genk; Gent (with a total of 7.500) and Brussels and indeed Greta Thunberg participated, joining the 7000 participants.
Now look/listen here to hear Greta Thunberg speak to the European union commision:
Scroll down on the article
of the guardian for the messagre reaction of
the European commission
After Brussels she accompanied the Belgian activist Anuna de Wever and immediately took the train to Paris saying “I's important that we go because it's a global problem”.
In Paris about 7000 schoolstrikers/ralleyers hit the streets and you might wonder why so few The reason is really that president Macron cannot run the country anylonger nor give a solution to the poverty and the social unrest in general. And indeed Macron during a meeting with Thunberg and de Wever agreed with that but moreso that he supports the climate protesters.
Greta Thunber speaking to the Paris ralleyers.
After Paris and on February 25th. Anuna de Wever appeared on a flemisch television programm, De afspraak, and said that the two days she spend with Greta Thunberg they were very close and that, looking back, she really idolyzes her. In Gent again climate protesters hit the streets, 10.000 in total. It's absolutely clear now that the youth would, if they could, take over political power.
NETHERLANDS 30 01 '19: in the Dutch parlaimant the political right wing party
VVD didn't turn up for a debate on the Dutch agreement concerning the climate.By the
way, the right wing parties do not want to accept extra taxes on the use of
airplane kerosine, one of the causes of the rising of CO2,
and on top they refuse demanding extra taxes of the major and international
industries who, we all know, do not pay taxes at all but are the highest
February 7th there was a ralley at the famous Malieveld in Den Haag
with up to 15.000 schoolstrikers/protesters.
Politicians know all too well they cannot ignore a ralleye at the Malieveld so soon after Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy Wiebes and prime mininster Rutte agreed to meet with a delegation on February 12th
And indeed they met but as far as the poltical side nothing came out of it because Rutte said whe needed to calculate the costs first. But we all know Rutte not being a man of his word so the delegation decided to continue the school strikes and ralleys because both Belgium as well as the Netherlands are not very eager to bother big industries and rather see the bill being payed by the poor and middle class.
NEWSFLASH: the delegation decided to organize another ralley at the Maliieveld on March14th and hopefully in co-operation with the Dutch railwayls so the protesters can buy cheap group tickets from wherever they travel from. However, no ralley took place. I'm very dissapointed.
trump withdraw from the Paris agreement, and other biggest polutioners (India; China; Russia and Brazil) are also chocking their people as well as us. Shame on then and all my empathy to parents; children and grandchildren.
However, in the same television mentioned earlier Anuna de Wever said people should not point fingers at another but at oneself and taking their own country as a starting point if not as an example.
Politics in general.
Divide et impera: a way in which one different party make them compete with each other and to avoid that they will co-operate together. In that sense one party can rule over all.
In general all parties and if left wing or (extreme) right wing and no matter what country they have an ostrich politics meaning whatever problem there is it is no theirs.
for each other and
care for our Mother Earth”
