My first demonstration

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!

If you don’t want my planet like it is. Get yourself a new one to waste. The little child was holding up the placard for almost an hour, not seeming to get tired at all!

A really funny ironical counter-demonstration with placards saying thing’s like: “Protect the threatened tax-paradises”
