Climate Change - political radicalisation of School Children in Ireland
On Friday, 15 March 2019 , Thousands of Irish school children assisted by teachers and school principles took time off school to take part in climate change protests across the country .

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar welcomed the action and announced big increases in carbon taxes , up to 4 times the current level were "on the table" in the next budget he said .

This meant that the children's parents would have to pay more for their energy bills and fuel for their cars .

In effect , the children were protesting for their parents to pay more taxes

The Blame Game : Children being taught to blame their parents and older people
 

Whats even more bizarre is that many of the children held placards "blaming" their parents for climate change .

Given the fact that most children involved would ask their parents for lifts to school or lifts to friends house or sports etc which results in carbon dioxide emissions which are the cause of climate change . Its very worrying that they are being taught to do blame others.  confused1.gif

Fridays For Future aka School Strike for Climate

The movement behind the protest is called Fridays for Future (FFF) also called School Strike for Climate , very little is known about this anonymous organisation or the people behind it , I contacted them asking for the names of those in charge but they refused to provide them .

The organisation says it was born out of a swedish child named Greta Thunberg . Thunberg who described herself as having "Asperger syndrome" , "obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD)" and "selective mutism" insisted that her family give up eating meat and give up flying on holidays in order to reduce the family's carbon footprint.

In August 2018, Thunberg decided to skip school and protest outside the Swedish Parliament every day with a sign that read "Skolstrejk för klimatet" (school strike for the climate) , her demands were that the Swedish government reduce carbon emissions in accordance with the Paris Agreement . After the general elections, she continued to strike only on Fridays coining the phrase 'fridays for future' .

Some Schools provided bus transport to the protests in Ireland while others hosted lunch time protests outside schools and civic offices. For example , Shellybanks Educate Together National School in Ballsbridge said it was .."supporting the March for Climate Change by downing our pencils and marching around the yard after break time" while Jonathan Browner, principal of North Wicklow Educate Together Secondary School said it was transporting its second year class to the protest in Dublin ,  while in Mount Temple Comprehensive School in Clontarf , principal, Liam Wegimont said the school was “not neutral” on the issue .. "we need to enable our students to have their voices heard"

In Conclusion , The Question for parents is a simple one . Do you want your child to be politically radicalised at School or not? , this time its climate change , what issue will be next  .

NOT . very sad
#
irrespective of one's views on climate change , political indoctrination of school children is a step back to 1930s germany . the whole idea is to remove children from the influence of their parents . its not right . parents need to stand up and say No to this , protect their children from state indoctrination

the EU Commission was using Thunberg again this week to warn about the end of the world. If the future is being ruled by the EU Commission whats there to look forward to . The New World Order is going to destroy the planet one way or another

there appears to be a network of teachers involved clearly affiliated with some higher power . I agree that there is a link with Educate together schools , these schools have links with many NGOs and get 80% of funding from unknown sources
