Thunberg leads massive climate march in Montreal

Montreal, Sep 29 (TIWN) Around half a million people led by Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg marched through the streets of Montreal to demand Canadian authorities to take action to tackle the climate crisis.

Thunberg, 16, spearheaded the march on Friday in which Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also participated along with his family, reports Efe news.  Trudeau met Thunberg privately before the march. After the meeting, the activist said that she told Trudeau he was not doing enough to respond to the climate crisis, though she clarified that it was the same message she conveys to all political leaders.  “My message to all the politicians around the world is the same. Just listen and act on the current best available science,” said the young activist, who has become the voice and face of the global movement against climate inaction.  Thunberg, who took part in the Montreal march accompanied by Canadian indigenous leaders, addressed the protesters: “At least 500,000 (are) here today. You should be very proud of yourselves (…) because this, we have done together and I cannot thank you enough for being here.”
