In a meeting today with German Chancellor Angela Merkel the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg handed an open letter to Merkel, which has been signed by 125,000 people.

The open letter demands leaders to immediately take following action:

Effective immediately, halt all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, immediately end all fossil fuel subsidies and immediately and completely divest from fossil fuels.

EU member states must advocate to make ecocide an international crime at the International Criminal Court.

Design climate policies that protect workers and the most vulnerable and reduce all forms of inequality: economic, racial and gender.

Treat the climate- and ecological emergency like an emergency.
