'Fight has only just begun': Climate activist Greta Thunberg holds her final school strike
- "Today, I graduate from school, which means I'll no longer be able to school strike for the climate," Thunberg said Friday on Twitter.
- The 20-year-old was catapulted to fame for skipping school every Friday to hold a weekly vigil outside the Swedish Parliament in 2018.
- Just as she did in August of that year, Thunberg marked her final school strike by protesting with a handmade sign that read: "School strike for climate."
Earlier this year, Thunberg was arrested alongside other campaigners during a protest against the demolition of a small German village to make way for a coalmine.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg on Friday took part in her final school strike, signing off after 251 consecutive weeks of demonstrations with a warning that "the fight has only just begun."
"Today, I graduate from school, which means I'll no longer be able to school strike for the climate," Thunberg said on Twitter. "This is then the last school strike for me, so I guess I have to write something on this day."
