Greta Thunberg has a “great deal” whenever she wants attention she just “sits down” after Ms Thunberg was arrested in Malmo, Sweden for protesting.
Greta Thunberg looked very pleased with herself as she was arrested during the fifth day of protests by a climate activist group in Sweden.
The environmental campaigner smirked as she was carried away by police together with other climate activists from the organisation Ta Tillbaka Framtiden (Take Back the Future), who blocked the entrance to Oljehamnen neighbourhood in Malmo, Sweden, for the fifth day in a row.
Police officers put their hands under the 20-year-old’s armpits while she had her arms outstretched as they removed her from the blockade.
Several other climate activists from Take Back the Future were arrested this afternoon while they mounted what they have called a “peaceful protest”.
The group has been blocking oil tankers in the Malmo harbour, with tactics including sitting on the road so the vehicles cannot drive out of the area.
Two hours ago the Take Back the Future’s official account tweeted: “One person has climbed onto a tanker and 3 tankers in total blocked. The police are on the scene.”
On Saturday Ms Thunberg tweeted about what was happening. She said: “Today, for the third day in a row, @TTFramtiden blocked oil tankers in the Malmö oil harbour.
“The climate crisis is a matter of life and death for countless people. We choose to physically stop fossil fuel infrastructure. We are reclaiming the future. #TaTillbakaFramtiden.”
The protests at the harbour are taking place at the same time as campaigners have been making their voices heard outside the Swedish government’s climate meeting.
In a statement issued on the first day of the protests, Ms Thunberg said: “The climate crisis has long been a reality for countless people all over the world.”
