@leovardakar can you all explain why you are so afraid of Greta Thurnberg and why you would try to stop her speaking at the EU Parliament? Or is it she shames you and your party politics maybe?

can you explain why your MEP's tried to block Greta Thurnberg speaking at the EU Parliament? Not only that they spoke of her in such a patronising and denigrating manner saying it is not place for children.
