1500 people participated in the Climate march in Helsinki! I usually don’t go to demonstrations so at first it felt a bit funny to walk the street shouting “Climate action!”. All in all, the feeling was just really great and after a while the shouting did not feel that odd anymore. I was so thankful to be there with friends, it made the whole thing so much more fun!
Why did I go to this particular demonstration when I don’t go to other demonstrations? Because I’m desperate for some climate action. As I’m not the president of USA or someone else with power I felt this was all I could do in order to send a message to Paris. The climate meeting starts in Paris tomorrow, and it’s going to go on for two weeks! Please, please China and USA, make a deal. I have understood that the EU is in as long as everyone else is.
Anyways, today was awesome. The sun was even shining. Enjoy the photos!
