Images from the video of the disturbing incident have been burned at a mass demonstration in Amsterdam: 85,000 protesters on the site and millions of users on the web watched how Swedish climate activist Gerta Thunberg (20) fought with a critic on the microphone. open stage, then the Dutchman was pushed by Greta’s colleagues and pulled to the side – eXXpress reported.
In a recent interview with the news magazine Der Spiegel, Thunberg’s courageous critic explained why she came to the stage and why she wanted to clearly express her opinion about how the event turned out. Erjan Dam, a retired physiotherapist, says: “When Greta Thunberg or other prominent activists constantly talk about the Palestine issue, it creates division. Those who disagree turn away from such speech. “This hurts the cause.” And Damm demands: “The climate protection movement must focus on its core issue: climate protection”. In any case, he was disappointed: “I felt abused – and many other participants felt the same way.”
And the protester explains why he then climbed onto the stage: “I came for a climate protest, not to hear political views.” Thunberg then called on participants to remain calm and then shouted several times: “There is no climate justice on occupied lands.” He was apparently referring to the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories. Thunberg had already been criticized for not specifically mentioning the Israeli victims of the Hamas massacre on October 7, following similar action last month, in which about 1,200 people were killed.
The leader of the German Green Party, Ricarda Lange, is now very clearly criticizing Greta Thunberg’s political course and her refusal to condemn the horrors committed by the terrorist group Hamas: “I have to say, I find these statements not only disappointing. Seems rather indecent at all. At this point, Greta Thunberg is misusing an absolutely necessary and legitimate concern for climate protection for a unilateral position on the Israel-Palestine conflict. One could almost say that she is “ultimately swaps” and Thunberg “undermines Israel’s right to exist.”
