May our silence amplify the voices of children and people everywhere calling for
climate action now!!
My name is Itzcuauhtli (Eat-Squat-Lee) and I am 11 years old. I am on a silent strike until world leaders take action on Climate Change. By world leaders I mean you! We have waited too long for the people we call leaders to take action. We now face a crisis that threatens everyone’s future and every living system on the planet.
I had to do something so I stopped talking on October 27, 2014. My talking strike for climate action has been harder than I ever thought it would be! My friends and teachers keep asking how long I will keep this silent strike going and how will it make a difference anyway. What I hope, is that in my silence all those who love us will speak out on behalf of our future and the world we are being left with.
The people we think of as leaders haven’t been leading. Maybe it’s up to youth to lead. Maybe we all have to be world leaders through our actions, because just talking isn’t getting us anywhere.
If you feel the way I do and are ready to be a leader join me December 10th for a Global Silent Strike. Refuse to speak for a day – or even an hour . When the silence strike is complete — we will speak up about climate change and never stop until we create the world we deserve to inherit and leave for future generations.
