Scientists warn: We have 11 years to reduce the use of fossil fuels by half and prevent irreversible climate change. We are in a state of emergency. We demand climate and energy policy that is in line with science’s suggestions for keeping the global temperature at 1.5 ° C. We demand a rapid de-dependence of the economy from fossil fuels by 2040, the promotion of savings and clean energy sources and the cancellation of all hydrocarbon mining projects in the country. We urge all political forces in the country to realize the stumbling block and the new parliament that will form after the elections a direct resolution on declaring the country in a state of emergency for climate change, as already done by parliaments in other European countries. It is our right to protect our lives and our place and together we can do it! “
