VIDEO: Greta Thunberg Says “It is Our Moral Duty to Use That Media Attention”

Teen Climate activist Greta Thunberg and Luisa Neubauer lead a panel of indigenous peoples in Madrid.

Thunberg tweeted “Indigenous people are literally being murdered for trying to protect the forrest from illegal deforestation. Over and over again. It is shameful that the world remains silent about this.”

Per The Columbian, Thunberg said she felt a “moral duty” to use the media’s attention to promote others who have struggled to get the limelight.

“It is people especially from the global south, especially from indigenous communities, who need to tell their stories,” she said before handing the microphone to young environmentalists from around the globe.
