There’s a great Peter Tosh song called, “You Can’t Blame The Youth” that goes, “you can’t blame the youth, when they get mad, you can’t fool the youth, you can’t blame the youth not at all, you can’t fool the youth.” Yesterday hundreds of young activists from all over the country came to Washington, D.C., to send our lawmakers a simple message…Our Generation, Our Choice.
The event, which we helped organize with our friends 350.org, Million Hoodies Network, United We Dream and Divestment Student Network brought together young folks to demand justice on race, climate change, and immigration. The Our Generation, Our Choice day of action highlighted the feeling that our political system is failing us, so we’re taking these crises into our own hands. And they sure did show our lawmakers and the world that they are not only ready, they’re not going to wait any longer.
