Swedish activist Greta Thunberg was arrested in London during an environmental protest outside a hotel hosting an oil executives' meeting. Thunberg was led away by police officers and placed into a van while protesters shouted their support. The demonstration, organized by Fossil Free London, aimed to block access to the InterContinental Hotel and highlight the fossil fuel industry's obstruction of the global energy transition. Five people were arrested for obstructing a highway. Thunberg stated that fossil fuel companies have been aware of the consequences of their actions for decades but have done nothing.
