On Thursday 7th February, thousands of school-students confronted the government demonstrating their concerns regarding the global emission crisis. They gathered at Malieveld in the Hague and from there kept marching through the state quarters during the day. The Dutch youth are following the good practice set by their Belgian comrades who have been protesting during the last few weeks to address the severity of climate change its impact on their future. The young initiator of the protest demanded, ‘We want better future, while our government is ruining the earth’. Simply put they want the climate agreement be made stricter!
