Global Climate Protest to be Held in Four Cities Across Croatia

Lauren Simmonds

As Morski/Leonarda Smigmator writes on the 17th of September, 2019, the Global Climate Protest, organised by the ”Fridays For Future Croatia” youth initiative will take place on Friday, September the 20th, at 18:00 at European square (Europski trg) in Zagreb, from where it will then head to St. Marks square (Markov trg).

This protest is part of a global strike and a week of actions (held from the 20th to the 27th of September, 2019) and according to present information, 3,167 protests are planned in over 100 countries across the world. Protests will also take place here in, Croatia – in Osijek, Rijeka and Split as well as Zagreb.

The aim of the protest is to raise people’s general awareness of the problem of the global climate crisis, which is already a major threat, and to urge the Croatian Government to “take their heads out of the sand” and take action before it is too late to do anything.

Resources like clean water, air and food are decreasing and there are more and more humans walking the Earth. According to exprts, all the weather disasters that have happened in the past year did not happen by accident, but are mostly the result of our devastating impact on nature.

Things will only get worse if we continue like this, they claim. Each and every individual must change in order to achieve some success and not wipe out humanity from the face of the Earth. The goal is for the ruling government to understand this properly and to take legal measures that will protect people and the Earth, or introduce changes that will have a positive impact instead of an overwhelmingly negative one.

The Fridays For Future initiative says the protest is different in that it has now called on numerous associations such as Green Action, Greenpeace and Animal Friends, as well as unions, retirees and others to join.

The message of this protest is that climate change is affecting everyone, not just the young, time is running out and it will be increasingly difficult to repair the damage we have inflicted upon the planet. The protest this time starts at 18:00 so that even people who are working all day can freely come and attend the protest.
