M for Madeira

There comes a time in everyone’s life, when you have to get up, just to act and make an impact. That time in Madeira came on one sunny day of February, on day 13, the day of Carnival, massive public celebration. We, Georgians aren’t really familiar with these kind of Carnivals, so I didn’t know how it actually works.

When you see thousands of people in magnificent and colourful costumes, you have a feeling, that you are attending a huge Halloween,but no, It’s something different, something more cultural and typical.

As I already told you, time came to take action, so yes maybe we are anarchists, yes we are mysterious and little bit dangerous looking, but we haven’t come to topple a government this time. We are green fighters and we came to remind people of upcoming danger, danger what we call climate change. So if we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.

it’s urgent we act now on climate change
