Give them back their lives [politicization of young people]

And stop politicizing young children and youth. Just because they ( the adults ) don't have any solutions they project it onto the young people. Give the young back their freedom and let them have have their youth and childhood

An interesting read but it is hardly a new concept. Children have always been manipulated to further "grown-up" agendas, but thankfully children have only a marginal interest in politics so the children´s parlement is not going mainsream anytime soon.

Alas, even in Ticino:

"Venerdì anche i giovani del Canton Ticino parteciperanno all'iniziativa mondiale. "

"Friday, Ticinesi children will also participate in the international student climate strike"

Do you think that is a bad thing Tom?

Seems like the adults have been procrastinating on the environment, as doing anything about is gets in the way of profit so they won't budge. Perhaps the kids saying something might raise some awareness, personally I doubt it, like what happened with Occupy a great big hype about justice and in the end it fizzled out, as making money was far more important then social equality. Humans eh!

Have they been kept in a basement or something? What a hysterical post. Those who have an early interest in politics can pursue it these days, but the vast majority don't care and are not forced to do anything they don't wan't to.
