The Swedish police forcefully remove Greta Thunberg from the entrance of parliament.

The authorities in Sweden have physically removed Greta Thunberg and fellow advocates for the environment, as they had obstructed the entrance to the Swedish parliament for a second consecutive day.

Two law enforcement officials carried Thunberg and physically removed her before placing her on the ground approximately 20 meters away from the door she was blocking.

On Monday, Thunberg and a group of environmental activists initiated a sit-in protest at the main entrances of Sweden’s parliament to raise awareness about the consequences of the climate crisis and the failure of politicians to take action.

After leaving on Monday afternoon, the activists came back to protest again on Tuesday morning.

In 2018, at the age of 21, Thunberg rose to prominence as a prominent advocate for youth involvement in climate action. She began her protests in front of the Swedish parliament, and over time, these demonstrations gained international attention and expanded into large-scale rallies on multiple continents.

She was stopped by law enforcement or forced to leave demonstrations in multiple countries last year, such as Sweden, Norway, and Germany.

In the previous month, a court in Britain found her not guilty of a public order crime. The judge determined that the police did not have the authority to detain her and others during a demonstration in London the previous year.
