Madrid, 23 September (EFE) — Demonstrations called today in twenty Spanish cities by the Youth for Climate (JpC) movement are taking place this afternoon with a particular focus on the climate-related energy crisis and a demand to solve both at once.

“If we look at the numbers, the richest 1% of the world pollutes twice as much as the poorest who make up the vast majority,” JPC activist Maria Crespo told Efe minutes before the demonstration began. people who will make a tour from the Plaza Mayor to the Congress of Deputies.

Crespo asked to take into account “the most vulnerable people who cannot pay as much for basic resources such as heating” as “we are in the hands of energy oligopolies who can play with the price of electricity as they see fit.”

The situation, according to the JpC’s call, “does not affect all people equally”, and its consequences are “destructive for disadvantaged people”.

As part of Fridays for Future’s global mobilization led by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, its call for today “requires a change in the energy system that brings energy closer to people and helps overcome the climate crisis. “.

To do this, JpC is calling for a “model change” focused on “promoting collective self-consumption, energy communities and energy efficiency”, in addition to paralyzing the installation of “new fossil infrastructures” and proposing “immediate withdrawal from the Spain Energy Charter Treaty”.
