Greta Thunberg

Local newspaper praised for naming and shaming people who abused Greta Thunberg on social media

A local newspaper has been celebrated after it published the names of people who have abused Greta Thunberg online.

Thousands of people have been praising the Bristol Post for naming and shaming Bristol residents who had abused the climate change activist on social media when she visited the city last week.


Last Friday, the teenage climate activist visited Bristol to deliver a speech about climate change – prompting right-wing hysteria. Posts exposed by the Bristol Post included one person saying she should be “burnt at the stake” and that her parents should “slap her with a brick”.

Now, with local press exposing people’s hate, maybe they will think twice before abusing a teenager online.


We write news that exposes the deception of populism and the hypocrisy of the elites who peddle it. We run campaigns that allow us to work together to fight back.

We hate Brexit. We hate Boris. We hate the far-right. We want climate action, the end of austerity, and a pro-European future.

Press for change.
