"The climate is like beer, the hotter it is, the less good it is", the young people recited in the streets of Brussels.
CIn total 30,850 young people marched to the climate on Thursday in various cities in Belgium. Students and students have cleaned up the lessons to regret that the politicians of the country are no longer involved in the implementation of an ambitious plan to protect the climate.

The last demonstrators arrived at the Zuidstation around 1 pm. If there were fewer young people than last Thursday, they were no less determined. On the placards of the walkers one could read: "
You are good without carbon ""

"The state of the environmental emergency"
In Liege, a procession of about 15,000 people from the Place des Guillemins starts at 10.30 am to go to the Place du Marché, via the Rue des Guillemins, the Avroy and Sauvenière boulevards, Joffre Street and Saint Lambert Square. The organizers of the Liège version of the Student Climate Walk hoped to collect 5,000 people. They had already negotiated with more than twenty schools to enable the participation of these students. The city of Liège had expressed its support by pointing out that no student who was absent from work was absent that day. The mobilization does not seem to weaken, on the contrary, because primary schools have joined the movement in which secondary school pupils and high school students in particular participate.
In Louvain more than 3,000 students and teachers from 27 primary schools and in Antwerp the 3rd edition of the action attracted some 350 young parties in procession to the city center. Arriving at the Place de l'Oper, they formed a circle and observed a minute's silence, symbolizing "
the funeral of the climate ".
