Greta Thunberg denies public order offence after she was arrested at a London protest

LONDON — Climate activist Greta Thunberg on Wednesday denied a public order offence after she was arrested last month at a demonstration against a major oil and gas industry conference in London.


The 20-year-old Swedish environmental campaigner was among more than two dozen people charged after protesters sought to block access to the luxury InterContinental Hotel in central London during last month’s Energy Intelligence Forum, attended by some of the industry’s top executives.


Thunberg was charged with breaching a section of the Public Order Act that allows police to impose limits on public assemblies. She and four other protesters pleaded not guilty at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Thunberg confirmed her details in court, but her address in Stockholm was not read out due to concerns over alleged threats she has received.

The protesters were granted unconditional bail ahead of a trial in London scheduled for February 2024.


Five others also charged over the protest all denied the same offence on Wednesday. They will face trial at a later date.

The court hearing drew crowds of photographers and Thunberg’s supporters from groups including Greenpeace and Fossil Free London, who gathered outside the building chanting and holding banners reading “Oily Money Out” and “Make Polluters Pay.”


Thunberg and other climate protesters accuse fossil fuel companies of deliberately slowing the global energy transition to renewables in order to make more profit. They also oppose the British government’s recent approval of drilling for oil in the North Sea, off the Scottish coast.

Thunberg inspired a global youth movement demanding stronger efforts to fight climate change after staging weekly protests outside the Swedish Parliament starting in 2018.

In July she was fined by a Swedish court for disobeying police and blocking traffic during an environmental protest at an oil facility. She had already been fined for the same offence previously in Sweden.

London judge acquits climate activist Greta Thunberg of charge that she blocked an oil conference

LONDON — A judge on Friday acquitted climate activist Greta Thunberg of a charge that she had refused to leave a protest that blocked the entrance to a major oil and gas industry conference in London last year.


Thunberg was acquitted along with four other defendants. Judge John Law said there were “significant deficiencies in the evidence” presented against Thunberg and the others to back charges that they had breached the Public Order Act during the Oct. 17 incident


Law said the police could have taken less restrictive measures, didn’t properly define where protesters should move and the order to disperse that was given was “so unclear that it was unlawful” that those who didn’t comply committed no offense.

The Swedish environmentalist, who inspired a global youth movement demanding stronger efforts to fight climate change, was charged in Westminster Magistrates’ Court with violating the act that allows police to impose limits on public assemblies. She had faced a fine of up to 2,500 pounds (US$3,190) if she had been convicted.

Thunberg, 21, was among more than two dozen protesters arrested on Oct. 17 after preventing access to a hotel during the Energy Intelligence Forum, attended by some of the industry’s top executives.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Climate activist Greta Thunberg was among dozens of people detained Saturday by police in The Hague as they removed protesters who were partially blocking a road in the Dutch city.


Thunberg was seen flashing a victory sign as she sat in a bus used by police to take detained demonstrators from the scene of a protest against Dutch subsidies and tax breaks to companies linked to fossil fuel industries.


The Extinction Rebellion campaign group said before the demonstration that the activists would block a main highway into The Hague, but a heavy police presence, including officers on horseback, initially prevented the activists from getting onto the road.

A small group of people managed to sit down on another road and were detained after ignoring police orders to leave.

Extinction Rebellion activists have blocked the highway that runs past the temporary home of the Dutch parliament more than 30 times to protest the subsidies.


The demonstrators waved flags and chanted: “We are unstoppable, another world is possible.”

One held a banner reading: “This is a dead end street.”

In February, Thunberg, 21, was acquitted by a court in London of refusing to follow a police order to leave a protest blocking the entrance to a major oil and gas industry conference last year.

Her activism has inspired a global youth movement demanding stronger efforts to fight climate change since she began staging weekly protests outside the Swedish parliament starting in 2018.

She has repeatedly been fined in Sweden and the U.K. for civil disobedience in connection with protests.

It was a good story when she was 12.

The challenge now will be to resist the allurement of fortune and maintain a sense of justice and modesty. She has a chance to be a good role model for youth at a time when it appears that demographic is lacking direction. I speak of those affected by the fentanyl epidemic.

She should get the kids to join the military to fight climate change.

When you think of kids finishing high school and taking a year off before heading to university hoping to find direction the military would be a very good option. Key is to improve productivity which is very low in Canada. It would also be a way for those involved to get a pay check involving some form of accountability. I think the country would be better off for it.

She hadn't been heard from in awhile so she needed to make sure she got the attention she feels she deserves.
