Nachrichten-heute.net presents the news: Protesters are calling on the G7 to take more measures to protect the climate and species
FALmouth (AFP) – On the sidelines of the G7 summit in Cornwall, hundreds of environmental activists demonstrated loud and colorful in major industrialized countries calling for more climate and species protection measures. About 2,000 Extinction rebel activists take part in a protest march in Falmouth on Saturday. The press center for reporting on the top class meeting is located in the port city, about an hour’s drive from Corbys Bay, the G7 summit location.
Protesters carried banners with inscriptions such as “Deeds, no words” as an appeal to US President Joe Biden, Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and their G7 allies. “I have a grandson who is one year old and I wish him some more life when he grows up,” said protester David Oliver, 62. Therefore, he advocates for measures against climate change and environmental pollution.
The G7 heads of state and government were unwilling to take “radical” measures against the climate disaster, criticizing the pensioner who had traveled from the north-west of England to demonstrate. Joyce, 42, who lives in Falmouth, had come with her nine-year-old son and six-year-old daughter to protest.
The allegation that the G7 countries are doing little for the climate and environment was also expressed on Saturday in protest against development organization Oxfam. Demonstrators with heads of G7 and giant papier-mâché heads of government lay in deck chairs on Falmouth Beach.
Climate and species conservation is one of the central themes of the G7 summit, which runs until Sunday. The heads of state and government of Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Japan, Canada and the United States to discuss, among other things, a project to put at least 30 percent of Earth’s land and marine areas under protection by 2030 want.
The G7’s decisions are important for the UN Biodiversity Summit in Kunming, China in October and the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland in November.
