A man briefly grabs the microphone from climate activist Greta Thunberg in Amsterdam and criticizes her pro-Palestinian activism.
Thunberg has attracted widespread criticism for many posts expressing solidarity with Gaza while barely making a mention of Hamas’s brutal onslaught on October 7 which targeted civilians in southern Israel, killing 1,200 people and kidnapping at least 240.
Addressing tens of thousands, Thunberg invites a Palestinian woman and an Afghan woman onstage, saying: “As a climate justice movement, we have to listen to the voices of those who are being oppressed and those who are fighting for freedom and for justice. Otherwise, there can be no climate justice without international solidarity.”
The man then comes onstage and says: “I have come here for a climate demonstration, not a political view.”

Others intervene to get him off the stage as the crowd boos.
Thunberg says “calm down,” and later chants “no climate justice on occupied land.”
