Today Priyanka took to Instagram and posted a few clips of Greta Thunberg's speech at the UN and was all praises for her.
On Monday, Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg dazed everybody with her groundbreaking speech at the UN's Climate Action Summit held in New York. One could sense the anger and emotion with which she delivered her speech. She stated, "This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. People are suffering, people are dying, and entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth." On August 2018, at a mere age of 15, Thunberg got some much needed time off school to protest outside the Swedish parliament, holding up a sign calling for a much stronger climate action plan. It didn't take much longer before other students joined her cause. Together they organized a school climate strike movement under the name Fridays for Future. After Thunberg addressed the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference, student strikes started taking place every week somewhere around the globe. Her rehashed honest yet bold questions to the world heads were lauded by numerous others later on. Amongst her many new fans, Priyanka Chopra hailed Greta for the groundbreaking speech which she delivered at the international summit. Prior, B-Town celebs like Alia Bhatt, Kajol and others praised Greta for the same through social media.
Soon after the worth remembering speech, Priyanka Chopra shared an Instagram post comprising of certain bits of the recordings of Greta's speech alongside a solid cheering message for the little youngster. Priyanka writes, "How dare we fail you... and what audacity we have to not want to help you save what's left. Thank you @gretathunberg for giving us the much-needed punch in the face, for bringing your generation together and showing us that we need to know better, do more to save what is most critical. At the end of the day, we only have this one planet. #howdareyou"
