March 2019 Newsletter


INFORMATION

These are the words of Greta Thunberg at the World Climate Conference from which the FridaysForFuture movement was born:

"My name is Greta Thunberg, I'm fifteen and I come from Sweden. Many people say that Sweden is just a small country and they do not care what we do. But I have learned that you are never too young to make a difference. If some kids decide to demonstrate after school, imagine what we could do all together, if only we really wanted it.
But to do this we must speak clearly, no matter how inconvenient this may be. You speak only of endless growth in reference to the green economy, because you are afraid of becoming unpopular. Just talk about moving on with the same misconceptions that put us in this mess. (...) But I do not mind being unpopular, I care about climate justice and a livable planet. Civilization is sacrificed to give a small circle of people a chance to continue making profits. Our biosphere is sacrificed so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. Many suffer to guarantee a few to live in luxury ... It is the suffering of many to pay for the luxury of a few ... when I celebrate 2078 75 years my children will ask me why we did not act when we could still do it.

Il 15 March throughout Europe is expected #FridaysForFuture
