Sorry but we are fucked
We are in an emergency. Today in Zurich, young and elder people from all parts of the country have chosen to sit peacefully on the road. Why? Because they want to live a decent life, now and in the future.
We want to live. To live without having to experience food shortages and violent social conflicts on a planet that has become uninhabitable. Without having to suffer the consequences of current political inaction.
We’re sorry for the mess. But this is not a drill. This is an emergency. The point is that sitting on the road provokes a reaction from the authorities, yes. Letters, petitions, marches, have not provoked any reaction. Immediate action is now needed. And if the government’s reaction is to arrest or imprison us, we will come back and be arrested. We will stop when the government acts.
Our lives now depend on the truth about the climate catastrophe to be told. On immediate action to be taken. And on getting a democracy fit to deal with this crisis, using Citizens' Assemblies to get us out of the deadlock.
You have the right to rebel, too
So Leave your desk. Invite your boss. Walk out of school. Switch off the TV. Put down your phone. Get on the streets. Grab a chair. And bring everybody. If you do one thing with your life, do this. Not later, now.
