Young climate activists to stage three days of protests all over Denmark

‘Den Grønne Ungdomsbevægelse’, the Green Youth Movement in Denmark, has announced demonstrations in several cities over the next three days

The young climate activist group Den Grønne Ungdomsbevægelse will hold demonstrations in six cities over the next three days.

On Thursday, protests will be held in Vejle and Aarhus, on Friday in Randers and Aalborg, and on Saturday in Silkeborg and Odense.

This will, reportedly, be the biggest movement of Den Grønne Ungdomsbevægelse so far. 

Aim is to focus on climate during election campaign
The demonstrations are taking place just days before Denmark’s general election on November 1.

However, Den Grønne Ungdomsbevægelse is keen to stress that it is independent of party politics. 

“During our demonstrations in six cities, we will hang posters, hold campaign workshops and a lot of other activities. Our movement has never been bigger. Young people across the country are fighting for a green election. We are taking advantage of this by joining forces across the country”, explained Esther Bünemann from Den Grønne Ungdomsbevægelse.

A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
