Highway madness in Sweden faces protests from climate activists
In Gothenburg, the second-largest city in Sweden, climate activists from Klimax and the Friends of the Earth "decorated" cranes with banners, planted trees and even had a breakfast on the construction site to highlight and protest against the climate highway madness being built in Sweden.
"It's bad enough that large amounts of taxpayersâ€™ money is being wasted on projects that wonâ€™t work, but these road projects will even lead to an increase of carbon dioxide emissions. Itâ€™s ironically that that we activistsâ€™ risks getting arrested while the real criminals, who on a consciously and cynically way make decisions that will lock us into a continued increase of carbon dioxide emissions will go free. We just canâ€™t sit quiet while climate criminal politicians threaten future generations living condition; itâ€™s every citizenâ€™s obligation to put pressure on the decision makers so they make climate friendly choices", said Lovisa BÃ¶rjeson from Klimax in Gothenburg.
