''' '' THE INJUSTICES TOP '' '''


EVERY STUDENT ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY and in the world will observe one single minute of silence in shame and remorse and repentance to mankind's atrocious and evil  practices of the past.

Preparing for her appearance before the UN General Assembly last fall, student Greta Thunberg found herself constantly interrupted by world leaders, including UN chief Antonio Guterres and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had formed a queue to speak to her and take selfies.

Jacinda Ardern, the prime minister of New Zealand, waited in line but didn't quite make it before it was time for the event to start, Thunberg recalls.

LONDON - BERLIN : SWEDISH HERO - CLIMATE ACTIVIST STUDENT Greta Thunberg said on Saturday the ''Black Lives Matter'' protests showed society had reached a ''tipping point'' at which injustices are finally addressed.

''It feels like we have passed some kind of social tipping point where people are starting to realize that we cannot keep looking away from those things,'' the 17-year-old said in an interview with BBC.

''We cannot keep sweeping those things under the carpet, - those injustices,'' Thunberg's interview aired as global capitals braced for another weekend of anti-racism protests triggered by the death of African American George Floyd at the hands of a white policeman.

BRITISH protesters have toppled the statue of a 17th century slave trader and the Church of England  and the Bank of England have expressed deep remorse for profiting from the sale of Africans to the Americans.

A FEW HUNDRED PEOPLE ALSO TOOK A KNEE TO HONOR FLOYD on a central square in the Scottish capital Edinburgh.

HUNDREDS BY HUNDREDS GATHERED IN LONDON'S HYDE PARK and marched past landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben on Saturday while police watched from a distance.

The mood was more festive and crowds much smaller and then at demonstrations during which dozens were arrested in London over the previous two weekends.

''This protest makes me feel hopeful but it also concerns me,'' a marcher who identified herself as  Tash told Britain's Press Association.

''We're in a pandemic and I don't want it to be just a hashtag and a trend,'' the 23-year-old said.

''It is hopeful because people are finally listening but they are just listening because they have the time and they are bored?'' she asked.

A statue of a southern general who defended slavery during the US Civil War was pulled down and set on fire by protesters in Washington on Friday.

Thunberg said ''people are starting to find their voice, to sort of understand that they can actually have an impact''.

She also described being stunned by the depth of US poverty she discovered while traveling with her father in an electric car they borrowed from the former California governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

''It was very shocking to hear people talk about that they can't afford to put food on the table,'' she said.

US demonstrations this weekend follow the Juneteenth holiday on Friday that commemorates the emancipation of those who had been enslaved there.

Those great and surreal memories that I have painted above, of a teenager form the opening to a 75-minute monologue broadcast on Swedish public radio on Saturday that soon shifted to the serious matter of climate change that's at the heart of Thunberg's work.

The 17-year-old student has become a global figurehead of the youth climate change movement since she started her one-woman protests outside the Swedish parliament in 2018.
