"Tomorrow 150 weeks will have passed since we started to school strike for the
climate. During this time more and more people around the world have woken up
to the climate- and ecological crisis, putting more and more pressure on you —
the people in power.
Eventually the public pressure was too much, you had the world’s eyes on you.
So you started to act. Not acting as in taking climate action. But acting as in
roleplaying. Playing politics, playing with words, playing with our future.
Pretending to take responsibility. Acting as saviors as you tried to convince
us that things are being taken care of, meanwhile the gap between your rhetoric
and reality keeps growing wider and wider. And since the level of awareness is
so low you almost get away with it.
But let’s be clear — what you are doing is not about climate action or
responding to an emergency. It never was. This is communication tactics
disguised as politics. You — especially leaders from high income nations — are
pretending to change and listen to the young people while you continue pretty
much exactly like before."
