Students’ pro-climate strike in Antwerp, Belgium


This 21 February 2019 video shows young Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg speaking at the Brussels, Belgium march of striking students.

Translated from Belgian daily De Standaard today:

Pro-climate truants gather in Antwerp

In Antwerp, a climate march by striking young people takes place for the fifth time.

The climate march will, just like the previous Antwerp editions, depart at the Operaplein square at 9 o’clock, and then go through the city center to the Groenplaats square. The Antwerp versions of the climate actions so far attracted ‘only’ a few hundred participants; this time a larger number is expected.

For the first time it is not a purely local initiative, but the main initiative of Youth for Climate with inspirer Anuna De Wever and also the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. …

Also the grandparents who stand up for the climate are back again. ‘Every time we as grandparents stand with them and encourage them’, says Elka Joris. “Hold on. That is our message. It is needed.” …

Next week, the climate march will probably take place in Louvain-la-Neuve.

Achieving the Paris Agreement global warming target could protect millions of tonnes in annual worldwide fisheries catch, as well as billions of dollars of annual revenues for fishers, workers’ income and household seafood expenditures, according to new research from the University of British Columbia: here.
