Police again remove Greta Thunberg from blocking Swedish parliament

Swedish police on Wednesday one more time became pushy in erasing Greta Thunberg and other climate activists who were causing hindrance in the entrance to parliament, taking them out of the space in a police van again this week. Thunberg and so many of other environmental campaigners on Monday started creating blockages in the main entrances to Sweden’s parliament in a sit-down protest in opposition to the impacts of climate transformation and what they revealed was political inaction.

Police held back and attempted to not interfere in the matter at first, but took away the demonstrators when the protest started to happen again on Tuesday morning. Thunberg, 21, became the face of young climate activists as her weekly protests, beginning in 2018, in front of the Swedish parliament quickly grew into a global youth movement with huge rallies across continents. Stockholm police have said that although activists had the opportunity to demonstrate outside the national assembly, they were erased for blocking entrances.
