Thunberg, protesters block Norwegian ministries

STORY: Thunberg, an advocate for ending the world's reliance on carbon-based power, has said governments should not allow the transition to green energy to be at the expense of Indigenous Sami rights.

"They should have seen it coming for violating human rights," Thunberg told Reuters when asked about the need for the protests, while she was sitting outside the energy ministry.

Norway's supreme court in 2021 ruled that two wind farms built at Fosen in central Norway violated Sami human rights under international conventions, but the turbines remain in operation more than 16 months later.
