Greta needs to get arrested every few months to remind everyone that she is the legit resistance (backed by the EU, UN, and WEF).
No one knows who she’s resisting. I guess she’s resisting people who have to drive to work. She doesn’t have to drive to work. She can leisurely stroll places in the afternoon, because she’s very rich.
Must be nice.
Greta Thunberg was arrested after joining hundreds of protesters who gathered at a five-star hotel in London on Tuesday morning to denounce a meeting branded “the Oscars of oil”.
Footage showed the Swedish climate activist being bundled into the back of a van by police after taking part in protests blocking the entrances of the InterContinental Park Lane, the venue for the Energy Intelligence Forum (EIF), which brings together fossil fuel executives and government ministers.
BREAKING: Greta Thunberg has been arrested blocking the entrance to the Oil and Money conference.
Hours after delivering a speech about the pollution of our politics by oily money.
It’s up to us to stand up for us.

Critics have called the event the “oily money conference”, in a nod to its previous name, the Oil & Money conference.
Addressing journalists before joining the protest, Thunberg said: “Behind these closed doors at the oil and money conference, spineless politicians are making deals and compromises with lobbyists from destructive industries, the fossil fuel industry.
“People all over the world are suffering and dying from the consequences of the climate crisis caused by these industries who we allow to meet with our politicians and have privileged access to.
“The elites of the oil and money conference, they have no intention of transition. Their plan is to continue this destructive search of profits. That is why we have to take direct action to stop this and to kick oil money out of politics. We have no other option but to put our bodies outside this conference and to physically disrupt [it].”
Dozens of protesters blocked Hamilton Place at either end with banners and pink umbrellas with eyes painted on them, shouting “oily money out” and “cancel the conference”, while others lit yellow and pink smoke flares.
People should really start protesting against Greta and her poisonous bird-genociding windmills. Protest her poisonous paper straws. Her deadly battery production.
She’s really a total menace to the environment, trying to destroy the whole earth.
