Greta Thunberg’s climate strike goes online again
STOCKHOLM (SWEDEN) – Climate activist Greta Thunberg said on Friday her regular protests will be stopped outside Sweden’s parliament because of the increase in COVID-19 infections, and return to only campaigning online.
Sweden reported 2,820 new coronavirus cases on October 28.
Thunberg told her roughly 4 million followers on Twitter, “The situation is worsening, so therefore it’s back to #ClimateStrikeOnline for me.”
She urged activists to protest online in March as cases have started increasing.
The October 28 spike in cases was the third record number in a few days for Sweden.
Thunberg said on Twitter, “Stay safe, take care of each other and #flattenthecurve!”
