Make Schools Matter--Join Extinction Rebellion

Yes, schools still matter, or they can matter, if they are telling the truth and educating children of all ages about the global climate emergency and how we must work together now to save life on Earth.  

If schools are not making the factual teaching of global warming their top priority, and if they are not letting children know that we do not have time for them to grow up and become environmental scientists and lawyers before we act, and if they are not giving children the tools and confidence to act now, then those schools do not matter.  Full stop. 

It is time for everyone know that the coming decade will be make or break in efforts to halt global temperature rise, and despair at this point is not an option.  

Only education connected to action is acceptable, and if you are not acting, then your inaction supports the murderous status quo. 

Yes, it's on you, on me, on us all. The environmental gradualists have made their own position a homicidal irrelevancy.

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is one group of environmental activists in the UK that has made non-violent resistance and civil disobedience against the oligarchs' unsparring and accelerating genocide its chief reason for being.
