Greta Thunberg Arrested During London Oil and Gas Conference Protest

HeadlineOct 18, 2023

In the U.K., Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was detained by London police Tuesday at a protest outside the Energy Intelligence Forum, a major oil and gas industry conference.

Greta Thunberg: “Behind these closed doors at the oil and money conference, spineless politicians are making deals and compromises with lobbyists from destructive industries, the fossil fuel industry. People all over the world are suffering and dying from the consequences of the climate crisis caused by these industries, who we allow to meet with our politicians and have privileged access to.”
