Watch the video: Greta Thunberg protests again – this time against wind turbines.
STORY: The wind turbines would have to be demolished, the rights of the indigenous people are binding, that’s roughly what they’re singing here on Tuesday in front of the Energy Ministry in Oslo. As on the previous day, the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was among the mainly young demonstrators who are campaigning for the Sami minority. Because the protest is directed against wind farms in the Fosen region. As early as 2021, the Supreme Court ruled that the facilities violate the rights of the indigenous Sami people, who have grazed herds of reindeer there for centuries. More than 16 months later they are still in operation. In addition to the Energy, the activists also occupied the entrance to the Ministry of Finance. Ella Marie Haetta Isaksen, protester: “Today we officially closed several ministries. We want to say that we are closing down the state because it is failing the Sami.” Thunberg, who is actually working to end the use of fossil fuels, said the Norwegian state should have seen the protests coming because it violates human rights. The switch to “green” energy must not be at the expense of the seeds. Greta Thunberg, climate protector: “The motivation here is high. Many are there, and there are more coming. They originally only wanted to do it on Thursday, but the campaign has now been extended and is continuing. It is very constructive to see that so many being there and really committed to this cause.” Some of them were carried away by police on Tuesday. The Ministry of Energy said that the wind turbines are a complex legal dilemma despite the judge’s verdict. We hope to find a compromise solution.
