Activists at the October protest, including Thunberg, attempted to block the entrance to the meeting at London’s InterContinental Park Lane Hotel.
Thunberg warned that “the world is drowning in fossil fuels” before being escorted away from the event by police.
She told journalists before her arrest that “spineless politicians” were gathering at the meeting with fossil fuel lobbyists, according to a report in the Guardian.
It’s not the first time Thunberg has had a brush with the law over her protesting. In 2023 she was removed by police along with other protesters as they demonstrated against the razing of the German village of Lützerath for the expansion of a coal mine.
