Conference Youth Demand Better Future
Hundreds of people from many countries, predominantly teenagers, staged a demonstration on Wednesday (11/12/2019) at the Climate Change Conference in Madrid, Spain, screaming, “Climate justice!”
The demonstrators, some wearing the traditional dress of several countries, were shouting, “Shame! Shame!” before they were ushered out of the complex by security personnel. Their observer access cards were confiscated. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres finally granted them access again on Thursday morning (12/12/2019).
Mohammad Reza Sahib, National Coordinator of the People’s Coalition for the Right to Water (KRuHA), and four other Indonesian activists affiliated with the Demand Climate Justice (DCJ) global network were also escorted out of the venue.
