Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was found guilty of disobeying police during a June climate protest in Malmö. The court fined her 1,500 Swedish Kronor ($144 USD). Thunberg admitted to disobeying the police but pleaded not guilty, arguing her actions were necessary to address the climate emergency. Though punishable with up to six months in jail, fines are common for such violations. Thunberg justified her protest as a response to a life-threatening emergency. Following the sentencing, she immediately participated in another sit-in protest at an oil tanker depot in Malmö. Thunberg remains committed to her activism supporting green energy and climate change apocalyptic theories.
