The Swedish student and climate activist, Greta Thunberg , which had met on Wednesday Pope Francis during the weekly General audience in St Peter's square, visited on Thursday the Senate in Rome.
The 16-Year-old was received by the Senate President Maria Elisabetta Alberti Casellati, and opened with a Seminar on the consequences of climate change. "Emissions have to be stopped to prevent the destruction of our climate. You don't want to understand, because you want to continue as before. But change will come whether you want it or not", - said the activist in a speech before the senators.
"We have to understand that we have a crisis. If we understand that, we can prevent disasters. We can lose no more time, no more excuses," said the Swede, in her speech.
"Nothing has changed so far,"
"We are protesting on the street, not to make Selfies, but because we want you to move to Action. We demonstrate, because we want our dreams and hopes. People congratulate me, but I don't understand why, because nothing has changed so far. Nothing concrete has been done to stop the destruction of the climate, or to brake," said Thunberg.
"you lied to us, you have robbed us of our future, and us with false hopes. You have told us that we can look with hope into the future, however, because of climate change, it will not be so," said the Swede. For good Friday Thunberg announced their participation in a student strike in Rome. The event will take place on the Central Piazza del Popolo in Rome. (sda/red)
