Last Friday September 27, about 20,000 people, according to the Local Police, walked through the streets of Barcelona. The reason: to demand measures to fight against the Climate Emergency.

 

 

Since the young activist Greta Thunberg promoted the “Fridays for Future” movement, which appeals all citizens to demonstrate every Friday against the lack of action on the climate crisis, thousands of people have already mobilized throughout the world .

Representing a large interdisciplinary community of scientists, the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) joined the latest demonstration that took place in the Catalan capital.

The demonstration started at 6 pm in Gràcia. The PRBB residents left the building at 5 pm ir order to join the rest of the demonstrators. The demonstration finished in Plaça Catalunya.

 

 

 

Hours before the main demonstration, at 12 pm, the PRBB residents also made a 10-minute stop at the Charles Darwin Square, with the same purpose.
