Greta Thunberg rally about saving the planet kills green space

15,000 showed up to listen to climate activist Greta Thunberg talk at college green in Bristol on Friday however 100’s have now signed a petition to have the organisers pay for the damaged caused.

A fundraiser was set up for repairs, which then resulted in calls for rally organisers to cover the costs.

The combination of thousands of people and heavy rain turned much of the grass into mud, angering some on social media.

Gavin Mountjoy commented on Facebook: “Oh the irony, hundreds of people turning up to talk about our planet dying end up destroying a green area.”

Barrie Moore, also on Facebook, said: “The organisers of this march should be made to pay for the damage.”
