      it is a good thing to see the youths taking part in the action against climate change ... if this generation unites and fights climate change with the skills and knowledge they have this crisis will end sooner than expected... it is time for the youths to stand up for the planet as there is no planet B

              Great seeing youths airing their voices for what is right .... Financial institutions that support fossil fuels need to be really ashamed ... With the kind of funds they have they should use them in doing what's right for our environment

                    @johnte_ndeto cutting off the finances might just do the trick. We must attack the fossil fuels left right and centre.
