Taking the Streets for Climate Justice: Time to Follow the Leadership of the Youth

Post by Toby Theriault, Age 15, Grade 10 @ Ucluelet Secondary School.

Let me tell you something adults: look around, as youth we are inspired! But we have no voice. 7 million of us and our government is still building a pipeline, the president of the United States thinks this is a hoax, and our oceans are still littered with plastic. Do you know why?

As inspired as the youth are, there are still so many things we can’t do. We should make a difference? How? We can’t vote, we don’t buy most of our own food or drive, and we definitely don’t own major corporations. Why are we expected to change the world when it’s been built on the premise that we’re too immature to make a difference? How immature can we be when we’re the only ones trying and standing up? Are we immature when 7 million of us are trying to inspire adults with votes, cars, and opinions to make a difference?

Help us to do something to save our future, we don’t want your empty words! If we all do something, there’s hope. Do it for us your children and grandchildren.”
