"Some say we are lazy and just want to miss school.
Some adults say it's bad we strike from school.
That we should study instead to make a difference in the future. The little fact that it will be too late by the time we've finished education they ignore.
To the adults that say that, we want to say:
Strike yourself instead!
Strike from work!
Go into the streets and shout!
Do something!
We need your help now more than ever."
Greta Thunberg, today.


"is it the keys to your freedom
or the bars on your prison?"

us govt repressive actions toward immigrants, (anarchist) political dissidents, labor activists presented in most benevolent context possible

offers glimpses of interesting discussions on political violence and relationship with political change, post revolution authoritarianism in russia

also, too much attention to melodrama of her love life, but that's often the case (sex sells).

nonetheless, nice to remind viewers about her ... and no matter how her story is skewed, it remains a lively (and inspiring) life
