My grandchildren were off school to “protest” climate change.
The BBC puked children spouting words put into their mouths by adults.
This whole event was a propaganda activity coordinated by Youth Strike 4 Climate.
I think its totally and absolutely disgusting and should NEVER have been permitted.
My grandchildren are not there to further your cause. What they know about Climate Change is what has been put into their heads by their schools. They can decide to join your protest, when they are old enough to think for themselves, and not regurgitate propaganda like small programmed robots.
Shame on you all.
This article on the BBC (God help us) news page says “Since then (began with 15-year-old Swede Greta Thunberg), tens of thousands of children across Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Australia have been inspired to hold their own demonstrations. Link
We know who “inspired” them!
The group, which helped coordinate the protests, has four key demands:
- The government should declare a “climate emergency”
- It should also inform the public about the seriousness of the situation
- The national curriculum should be reformed to include “the ecological crisis”
- The age of voting should be lowered to 16 so younger people can be involved in decision-making around environmental issues.
How low can they go?
