Fridays for future Madrid, Protesters putting pressure on COP25

Time for action

I attented a demonstration of Fridays For Future in Madrid while I was there working on the COP25. Hundreds of thousands people gathered between the Ritz Hotel and Atocha train station to protest against the climate change. Meanwhile the delegation were still debating at the united nations climate change summit at Feria de Madrid. Experts called their plans insufficient to fend off climat change’s disatrous effects. Since the Paris agreement at the COP21, gas emissions have risen by 4% and this year’s summit shows no sign of stopping that trend.

I’ve followed the group of indigenous leaders and Youth activist they marched in the streets of Madrid calling for action against the climat change and for the climat justice. They said: “My ancestors were the original climate activists, beginning at first contact. We’ve sacrificed everything for our lands. We’ve fought, we’ve died. We as Indigenous youth are calling on Global leaders to do better.”

While publishing these pictures i just read that there was a clash between climate activists from and UN police at the COP25 in Madrid

URGENT: INTERNATIONAL STRIKE THIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13TH, IN RESPONSE TO COP25 EVENTS

On Wednesday, December 11th, over 300 climate activists, including many young climate strikers from around the world, were kicked out of COP25 in Madrid after protesting for women’s and indigenous people’s rights and calling for ambitious actions from rich countries. The voices of millions of people are silenced at the climate change conference in Madrid. While civil society was kicked out from the COP25, fossil fuel lobbyists remained inside. This cannot be tolerated!

We cannot accept this injustice and violation of human rights. We have to stand up for our rights and our future! The climate strikers present in Madrid are calling out for an international strike and action day TOMORROW, Friday, December 13th. We need to call attention to the inaction at COP25 and the exclusion of civil society from COP25.
Please mobilize your local groups this Friday, and forward to all strikers around the world!
The outcomes of COP25 are insufficient, and a painful image of how little politicians care about the planet. We stand in solidarity with indigenous people, people from the Global South, and people that are already suffering from the climate crisis.

We will no longer accept empty words. We need leaders that listen to the people. (Source: https://www.fridaysforfuture.org/)
