Greta Thunberg accused after blocking Sweden oil port for second time
Months after she was found guilty of a related offense, Swedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg has been charged with ignoring a police order to leave a demonstration at a busy port.
For refusing to abandon a demonstration on a route for oil shipment from Malmo harbor, she was fined in July.
Following the decision, Ms. Thunberg and other activists went back to the dock where they were once again detained by police.
On September 27, she will face a second trial.
The rally on July 24th, according to a statement from Swedish prosecutor Isabel Ekberg, was not authorized and caused traffic disruptions.
Along with the organization Reclaim the Future, Ms. Thunberg was protesting at the port in southern Sweden. In an effort to protest the usage of fossil fuels, they made an effort to block vehicles from entering and exiting.
The demonstration happened shortly after Ms. Thunberg was found guilty and fined 2,500 Swedish Krona (£180; $224) for a similar demonstration on June 19 at the same port.
