Greta Thunberg marks her 17th birthday with 7-hr climate strike

Greta Thunberg turned 17 on Friday,. She marked her birthday with a seven-hour hour protest outside the Swedish parliament.

“I’m not the kind of person who celebrates birthdays,” she said.

The climate activist braved winter conditions in her native Stockholm to continue the weekly Friday School Strike for the Climate campaign that helped catapult her to international fame.

“I stand here striking from 8 am until 3 pm as usual ... then I’ll go home,” Thunberg, Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019, told Reuters.

“I won’t have a birthday cake but we’ll have a dinner.”

It’s been a busy 12 months for Thunberg, who crisscrossed the globe by car, train and boat - but not plane - to demand action on climate change.

“It has been a strange and busy year, but also a great one because I have found something I want to do with my life and what I am doing is having an impact,” she said.
