Greta Thunberg: We return to the streets because the crisis has not disappeared either

Greta Thunberg and his hosts of Fridays for Future return to action on September 24 with a new and multitudinous school climatic strike. "We have not disappeared," the Swedish activist proclaimed, wrapped by Luisa Neuauer (Germany), Vanessa Nakate (Uganda), Gabriel Klaasen (South Africa) and Dohyeon Kim (South Korea) in the re-launch of the campaign.

"We return to the streets because the crisis has not disappeared, in any case it has aggravated," Greta Thunberg warned in an appearance by zooming at various international media. "People may think we're going on track, after the paron of the pandemic, but it's not like that".

"The 2021 will be the second year with the highest CO2 emissions in history," added the Activista. "And we have already seen the recent UN report based on climate plans of one hundred countries: emissions will increase 16% by 2030, instead of decreasing 45%, which was the initial goal."

"To continue like this, we move towards a warming at least 2.7 degrees, and that we can not allow it," Thunberg concluded. "Our so-called leaders continue giving speeches but do not take the actions they should, nor do they react as if we were really a crisis."

The Swedish activist ensures that heights that he has not yet decided whether he will attend COP26 of Glasgow in November "because there are still many uncertainties." Even so, she was willing to take the leap if there are guarantees of a "democratic and safe" summit, starting with an equitable distribution of vaccines and a strong face-to-face representation of developing countries.

Thunberg was skeptical about the possibility of a financial agreement of 100,000 million dollars (85,000 million euros) for mitigation and climate adaptation projects in the most vulnerable countries: "Nations such as Sweden should stop giving lessons to other countries and Assume your part of responsibility for the high contribution per capita at the level of emissions. "

"We have to start from the fact that the climate crisis does not occur in a vacuum, but it is the product of the intersection of other crises," Thunberg declared. "I think people are waking up and making the connection, we have advanced a lot since it started the movement in 2018, and I did not imagine that we could get here. But we are still far from the change we need."

The new wave of climatic strikes is summoned under the Hashtag #UPROOTHESYSTEM (#Arrancacelsystem) and aspires to have a media impact with symbolic actions. In Germany, he will coincide with the final stretch of the electoral campaign, with more than a hundred shares and with the backdrop of the floods that caused more than 180 deaths two months ago.

"What happened this summer has made the climate crisis become a crucial theme of the campaign, but none of the parties (not even the Green Party) has been up to the circumstances," said Lisa Neubauer, at the forefront of Fridays for Future in Germany.

"Democracy must be practiced every day, and not just the day of the elections," Matitated Greta Thunberg. "The climate crisis can not be resolved with the traditional parties policy, which is why we went out into the street, to ask the leaders to upload the ribbon."

From Africa, Vanessa Nakate, the Rise Up movement, called Boris Johnson as a host of COP26: "What the UK has to do is preach with the example and put an end to oil surveys in the North Sea . The actions are incongruous with the promises. We can not be claiming the end of fossil fuels and planning the world's largest pipeline (1,445 kilometers) between Uganda and Tanzania. "
