More than 200 Uppsala Councils gathered on Friday afternoon at Forumtorget in the center of Uppsala. They want politicians to seriously understand the climate issue, back the Paris Accords on reducing carbon emissions and get a fast fossil fuel combustion.
"Empty words and more conversations do not save our climate," astonished protesters.
During the day, some students in Uppsala also hit the school in protest against what they consider to be insufficient climatic measures. They continued to talk and demanded adults to take responsibility and to jointly address climate issues.
