Greta Thunberg sentenced for crime in Malmö district court

The exaggerated climate crisis

Climate alarmist Greta Thunberg was sentenced to a daily fine for disobeying public order after a “climate action” in Malmö in June, Malmö district court announced.

We will definitely not back down, she said after the verdict.

The alarmist, who took part in a protest in Malmö’s oil port earlier this summer, was sentenced to 30 daily fines of SEK 50 each, and to pay SEK 1,000 to the Victims’ Fund. Despite the sentence, she says she will not refrain from future climate actions.

In court, Thunberg denied the crime, explaining that her actions were justifiable.

We cannot save the world by following the law.

She argued that she acted out of “distress due to the climate crisis”. But the court rejected this argument, saying that this does not absolve her of responsibility.

The trial showed footage of Thunberg and other young people sitting in the oil port and blocking the road, despite police orders. Thunberg confirmed that she understood the police’s request, but chose not to follow it.

Thunberg together with other climate activists from the Ta tillbaka framtiden movement tried to block the entrance and exit of tanker trucks in the Malmö oil port on June 19. Several other people involved in the action will also be put on trial later in August.

Following the verdict, Thunberg has received support from several other climate alarmists, including Fridays for Future and Scientist Rebellion.
