Greta Thunberg Arrested at Climate Protest in the Netherlands

Climate activist Greta Thunberg was arrested at a climate protest in The Hague, Netherlands Saturday.

Thunberg was one of the dozens of people who police detained when in the process of removing protestors who were obstructing part of a road in The Hague, The Associated Press reported.

She was spotted flashing a sign for victory when in a bus that police employed to transport protestors away from the protest against subsidies and tax breaks for companies in connection with fossil fuel industries.

Before the protest, the Extinction Rebellion group said that activists would block a highway going into The Hague.

However, a large police presence initially stopped them from going on the road.

Eventually, a smaller group of people sat down on a different road, and police detained them after they didn’t listen to orders to leave, The AP said.

“We are unstoppable, another world is possible,” demonstrators chanted.

Earlier this year, a London court acquitted the young Swedish climate activist of not following an order by police to exit a protest last year that blocked the entrance of an important oil and gas industry conference, The AP reported.

In February of last year, Thunberg said in an op-ed in The Los Angeles Times that world leaders aren’t even “moving in the right direction” on the issue of climate change.

“The often-used argument that ‘we don’t have enough money’ has been disproven so many times,” Thunberg wrote.

“According to the International Monetary Fund, the production and burning of coal, oil and fossil gas was subsidized by $5.9 trillion in 2020 alone. That is $11 million every minute, earmarked for planetary destruction.”

    This bitch twit needs to be placed in prison for good. What good is it to arrest her stupid ass then turn around and let her go at it again. She is fighting something that is not really there or happening. There is no such thing as climate change. She is some piece of stupid work for sure. Arrest her and keep her in prison. We are sick and tired of her.
