Comment on Help from fracking campaigner, or orchestrating students? by Stephanie.

As parents of the generation who will inherit this planet destroyed by capitalism’s insatiable appetite for fossil fuels, it is our duty to educate our offspring on their power to create change by having a voice.
Having a voice is central to true democracy.
Adults cannot be demonised for educating their children to participate in a global movement, for teaching our kids how to be leaders.
The change starts within, not with nit picking the involvement of adults in their children’s lives, especially when the stakes are so high.
