striking from what exactly? a weekly trip to bluewater on daddys credit card?
Funny????… They’re clearly protesting to stop emmiting so much co2 into the atmosphere cause they actualy care about their future. Just cause they’re teenagers don’t mean they can’t make their voice heard. That was pretty insensitive cause this is a major problem in our world alot of us feel strongly about this and if the older generations arnt gonna do anything about it then we will cause it’s our futures that’ll suffer.
Well at least they found a use for their colouring pens and crayons,
