SOT, Greta Thunberg, Swedish climate activist: "You can often feel like the world, the future of the world rests on your shoulders, like this is a big burden. And you always feel like you are not doing enough. But we are doing more than we can. We are not the ones who are not doing enough. It is the people in power, the politicians, the business leaders and the media who are not doing enough. And they are the ones who should feel responsibility."

SCRIPT
Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenage climate activist and Nobel peace prize nominee joined protesters at a 'Fridays for Future' event in Berlin's Invaliden park on Friday.
Thunberg briefly addressed the crowd gathered in the German capital.
"You can often feel like the world, the future of the world rests on your shoulders, like this is a big burden. And you always feel like you are not doing enough. But we are doing more than we can. We are not the ones who are not doing enough. It is the people in power, the politicians and business leaders and the media who are not doing enough. And they are the ones who should feel responsibility," said the activist.
She went on to assure that she would 'never give up' in her fight for climate justice.
The 'Fridays for Future' strike movement came to prominence through the then 15-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who conducted a solitary protest outside the Swedish parliament in 2018. Since then, Thunberg has galvanised tens of thousands of students across the world to walk out of school on Fridays to demand stronger action from their governments on climate change.
