Greenpeace in Spain protests Trump climate move
Dozens of Greenpeace supporters gathered at the gates of the United States embassy in the Spanish capital to protest President Donald Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement.
Protesters accused Trump of becoming a "global threat" and "harming the planet" in signs they held Friday morning at the entrance of the embassy in central Madrid.
Greenpeace's director in Spain Mario Rodriguez said Thursday's announcement will require U.S. civil society and companies — as well as the rest of the world — to work harder to fight global warming.
"The battle against climate change is irreversible," Rodriguez said. "Resistance will be maintained because the United States is much more than just the White House and Trump."
