We should not have a you know I do hospital system. Some get healthcare and others is sick care. Altruistic can learn we should have access to quality education. We should be feeding people help people in our jails and hospitals schools. And I'll senior sent. We need to change what we are doing. It is broken so maybe God said to us.

We're here God. Well everyone that was Eric Adams. You heard it from him. I that was great so inspiring. So I'm looking forward to seeing what he's GonNa do in the city. I think it's GonNa. It's so inspirational I even just talking about the food thing that hit me close to home because I lost my father two diabetes and he went to the whole. He did all the medication. The doctors told him to do I. If he would have had the Mojo did do the Internet and like you know really research he probably would still be with us you know. And and and hearing that from him Was I opening? Especially if you're a person who has a certain age too because you know we get stubborn sometimes and he no. He changed his his whole life. And that was something good to hear. Yeah we were talking about earlier how it's also like embedded in our communities as people of Color we have this sort of. I don't know I feel like it's also attached to this my cheese small. Where there's all this branding of like eat meat. Eat steak eat this way. You're to be a tough tough person. And then like you know people were just like are the the fridge is always stocked with meats and lake. You know and then it's also convenience when you have a large family and your your income is level easier to buy in bulk and just you know not really focus on eating well but there are ways and I think it's important to put that information out there and that's what I love about Eric. Who's actually getting that really important detail you know like he gets me excited about politics like like a little. Heo See there never was in politics and so like L. C. Came around and now he's also make elevating me in another way to like also do my part. I honestly I. It's exciting. I feel like the I feel like what happened. Twenty sixteen has shifted away unfil- as well like I hate what happens and I'm hearing voices that we that That came out of that frustration and anger. And and we're I think we're at a place where we're hearing newer voice says and they're being heard and we're listening and it's refreshing and I'm all for it. I'm all for I'm here. I'm I whoever who is just trying to push people in a positive path and calling motherfuckers too at the same time and Eric. Sorry I liked Eric. He talked about the things. That people aren't saying you know all the under like when the surgeon general was on TV talking to black and Brown communities talking gibberish. You're not acknowledging. The fact that these are the essential workers that are the ones in the frontline that the ones that are the ones packed on the subways. They're the ones that are not protected at the supermarkets. Who are more at risk you know? It's not just because we're drinking and smoking in like visiting our moms and POPs I know I know and there was a Lotta irresponsibility that happens. prior to like during the You know when things finally started closing even for myself I. It took forever for the company. I work for to finally say okay. It's time for you to stay home. I'm at that point. There was no one else like it was just me essential workers. I'm GONNA Social Worker. I fucking designed bathing suits but I felt like you know and it was like essential workers like homeless people and Unfortunately people that were using free. Leo's like all right. Fuck it but we're but we're but it came to a point where I didn't feel You know they talk about how. How about me and how is GonNa get actually annoying me about tweeted to? I'm like why are you still going to work? That's you at risk for what's a bathing suit for this company brought to you in the first place like not at all and how they contacted me sense are you okay. How're you doing now? So this is why. Everyone's going to shift their shit when the gates go down meeting him to see you know if if we have the option more options to shift gears and if these companies ended up opening up again and if you have other opportunities to be in a in an environment that they can give a shit about you take that opportunity you might have to pay cut. Whatever may be like. I think I value Companies actually care Rather than check at this point But I I honestly I got sick anything either. I got sick. I definitely got sick. I couldn't get tested. I'm sure it was from each still travelling to the city horse. You know like but do they know that I got sick now. Did I was going to be petty..

"All of these medicines and just in resonate with me and so. I said hold on for a moment. They don't want to put me on insulin right away. My diabetes was that the delay stages wow and I just refused to succumb to that. Because my mother was diabetic for fifteen years is seven years on insulin and I said that's not the life I wanted to live and so I decided to you know I like to say I became scientific in onto Google and googled reducing diabetes. Your own doctor. Sometimes you know all of this information came and I was able to connect with. Some doctors flew down to see one in Ohio. And that doctor gave me information about my diet and he said listen. If you change your diet you're gonNA reverse diabetes and return to the city. A clean up cupboard. Nothing helped he was in my covered. Everything was processed and I started to go on a whole foods plant based Diet and within three weeks. My eyesight cleared up. Wow Vision loss when away? Three months later monarch damage went away. My ulcer went away of my cholesterol normalize my psa normal my my dad. At that time the prostate cancer that normalized. My mother then followed me eighty years old. She went on a hopeful plant based Diet and diabetic. For fifteen years and two months she got off the insulin. Amazing that admitting that's the power of rates so is so when I started to dig into this so wait a minute all about is a losing their kidneys. GonNa Kidney Dialysis. The kidney disease doesn't running out community it's not in our DNA. It's out dinner. That's news and Gone Blind. Losing amputation. The number one cause of non trauma. Amputation is diabetes. You know number one of all of these issues and so we went on this pursue and I started to do an analysis and watch what repeat and wet feeding our people who that is causing a crisis in the first place. No matter where you go you know the deepwater. This the food we eat came from the plantation. We're eating the slave master. Food must be semi looking. Look at those rose sewing machine. This insane cycle that keeps going around and around and noticing like even during this insane time at like all of a sudden. I'm seeing more and more fast food. Commercials there's no commercials like from trader dozens of commercials but there's no Education I'm like here's what you could do during this time to. Maybe like work on your health. All I'm seeing like Popeye's and and The you know McDonald's all these like you know you can get all this food for twenty dollars. You Feed Your Whole Families for twenty bucks but in the end they this is out of the after the gates open we become have normalized. We're not going to be that healthy. Say this when you think about it now we have you corner and all your children are going to be able to say that she can come up. Is Hunger thing right right now? Out of like you know if they make it to they making it to reasonable that you know 'cause our you know everyone's job so of course. Everyone's going to get one you. That's also I wanted. 'cause we hear we talk a lot about gentrification you know because we're like Puerto Ricans from born and raised in New York so obviously that's affected us a lot and it's I feel like that's a part of this too because it's like you know people are pushed out of their communities and then but they're the ones working at those markets that sell all this organic healthy expensive food but they can't even afford to buy the food at the market that they work at let alone pay their own rent. So it's like a stroke even gentrification so like seeps into all this stuff too it's really just been right and then there's the arrogance that comes with it you know the attitude that comes with it here you've been here. You're the supermarket you you stock the shelves and People WanNa look downward and disrespect. You don't want to come in and be part of the community but come in and displace your cultural norm. Why does people making so much noise on Sunday? Church right yeah we talk about a lot like in neighborhoods like that are like in. Bushwick all the Latin neighborhoods. People are moving in calling the cops on the kids playing outside or playing music but we play dominos outside. We had the fire hydrants open where industry like. That's part of our culture. You can just go there and then criminalize. It's it's really it was. That was what the heart of my go to go back to Iowa comet was about it was about. I love listening to leave someone. This this is where people were doing now. The other council people who come to the city and fit in. But you don't use government to resources to target people you know we one of the great restaurants up in Washington heights and my man Fernando Material La Marina excellent plays man. It's a beautiful place. That was the whole drug strip. At one time he came in he cleaned it up. Yet of three hundred employees. He spent six million dollars renovated. New arrivals came in. They call the police. They got tired of seat in of folks of color going using this this place for years. The police came in and set up road. Blocks ten blocks away from his place is stop cars from being able to drive down the block and they destroyed his business started Hitting them with citations. He lost the whole business. Some white guy came in and took over time we hit. We hit that all out to the community is being destroyed up in Washington Heights area. All of those small clubs places where people go to funny like ever since this covert hit us. All those people actually did go back to Maho an Iowa late. They're not even here late. You left you now. They're gone which is kind of all of them. But I'm like okay here and ruined everything. GonNa Leave New Yorkers Fiber of the fitness clearly the New Yorker to use anywhere. My block has been really. I'm trick so we got little little freak so that being said I'm wondering how like do you think this is going to affect gentrification like after when we're supposed to be going back to normal like is that going to affect the city and like things are going to change after this is what our focus should be now because would first of all new norm. The norm that we were used to. It will never be the same and win the new norm and we need to adjust to that There's going to be some new business opportunities that are going to open and we need to be ready to engage ourselves in those business opportunities. There's going to be a lot of resources coming from the city the state and federal level. What we can't do is allow them to do what they did. With the stimulus money. They put stimulus money into businesses but now businesses attempting to apply for that money. They're saying hey. We ran out before the ink was dried on the stimulus bill. They already told the people they wanted to tell. We need to be carved out part of legislation and the stimulus money for those communities that are hardest hit that needs to be written into the language. We're GONNA look those communities that were hardest hit and that is what we're going to ensure we have a rebuilding process. There s includes the house. That's include job training that includes educational opportunities so we need to focus so the corona virus discriminate. But I'll policies and practices did discriminate and we need to make sure that recovery does not discriminate while well put. This is the moment that we can agree shift society and really. That's the only silver lining haired like for for me. When I what I see happening right now I wanted to talk a bit you or police officer and a captain also right and I heard you WanNa tell us this story about why. You became a police officer and I wanted. I thought I wanted you to share that with us. There was two times in my life where I found myself doing something not because I wanted to but because I was called to and I think there's a different interaction When you call linked to do something and Policing was one of those times As a child my brother and I we were arrested and the police officers that arrested us in Queens one third precincts the same precinct with Sean. Bell was shot and killed and police officers after we were sitting there. They didn't chason picked us up from school. I was fifteen at the time. And they while they feel now the reports said you feel like a beatdown and we didn't know what it what they meant and it took us downstairs suited precinct. And they're they want to beat us. They kicked US repeatedly in our grind over and over again that would only flip plays that they hit us and for week of both of us were urinating blood for a week throughout that whole process. Never told my mother to became adults and Manley right and I. It was fascinating how an incident can impact people differently. Your brother left that encounter. I still think he suffers from mental health issues. Because of that you'd left it angry e traumatize and would have you. I've never forget going to the counselor of part of the of our sentencing was that I had to go to a counselor and I was just such an angry person at that time of my life. That the counselor sat down and spoke to both of us. She told my brother. I want you to come back next week. She says Eric. You don't even have the barber coming back you know. She saw it as there was no recovery for me. You know in that interaction and so later Some years later young man was killed named His name escapes me but he was shot by a housing. The housing cop shot him for no reason at all. He walked up to the car and so the cops sit out front. He exit copy says officers. Are you coming from my apartment? The officer pulls out his gun and shot him and killed him and I was part of an organization called the Black Knight of Front at the time and the we protested. The officer was found. Not Guilty of because. They said he had an epileptic seizure. The boys and no CJ exists but the judge and the jury is still found not guilty and after the trial of a few men that I really I was quite of a group called what are called black united front. They came to thirteen of us. A said we want you to go into policing of each one that you someone into the Department of Corrections someone who to call someone into Housing Police Transit Police NYPD separate departments at one time and they said we watch out to fight from within. And I was a kid. You know these guys. I was just at that time. I couldn't hear police sirens without reliving that beaten. I couldn't see a police show on TV. I could see a police car. You 'cause you know your mind holds onto things vows. They were smart enough to know in order for me to get through. It had to go back in it and I wanted to the police department and became a Bee's we started..

"Listening to allegedly NYC. How are you get to see both of you? We're great leisurely. Thank you so much for joining us today. Report where you're very casual. You're a busy man you know just trying to we call the grinding yes. The grinds the hustle Israel. We're all New Yorkers here. We're all New Yorkers here. I'm from Sunset Park Brooklyn. Avon you just South Bronx okay. Nice Nice Nice and you were. There's where are you from your from route Phil Brownsville and South Jamaica Queens awesome location about that Tattoo on my hand. Yes Oh you spook that it i. This is the name of my album. My first album lost in lust. Mckay has lost in less. Put them together. I think tank you take them separately. They had to be put together. This is true in the marriage girl. Over Claire Yes. Are we on your end? We're good great well. So as New Yorkers where the epicenter of what's going on right now which is really intense especially for people who are like and raised here and today I wanted to talk a bit about how pandemics often expose these underlying issues within societies and how certain people are cared for while others are ignored. You know specifically now. We're seeing that this really disproportionately affecting black and brown communities. So I wanted to talk a bit about how we can use this moment to sort of like I feel like there's a magnifying glass on these issues right now and it's a good time to address them and hopefully shift towards a better society. I you know we should. We should this. Situation is like an onion and we should pill back each layer to get a full understanding. If you don't you'll miss it The thing we should Examined my belief is that we had a place right now and any major crises. You are in the a search and recovery fakes Phases that you're saying that there are still bodies alive and we need to find them. The recovery is that you're going to go in and get those dead bodies and just make sure they have a dignified burial and I don't want to look at the corona virus crisis that we have shifted to the recovery phase. We're still in the phase. We can still say bodies. We have to stop doing the things that we did. Which is we ignored black and Brown people in this city in this city. We divided the city into two categories. And when we did it I said to my staff that's coded language that we use in right now. When we said essential employees go out nonessential employees stay home. We basically said the essential employees over seventy percent of the essential employees are black and brown people and overwhelming number of immigrants. So those who were nonessential they were able to stay home and run. The city do their laptops and listened to their children. Call around on the floor and they were able to be a safe zone. That in itself was wrong. But let's take you to more steps. The second step is that we told the essential employees that you are supposed to go your job without any protective equipment with the full understanding. That people should be sheltered in place. You're not shelter in place with the full understanding that you should have six foot difference. You're not doing six difference. We're going to send you out there to make sure our abruptly on shelves when we call each you showa when it's time to drive trains and buses. You're going to be there so we're going to have you folks run our city while we and I'll save the HABE. Now here's the real dangerous part of its. You heard all the time the reason we couldn't give to nurses who are predominately black and Hispanic and Caribbean we couldn't we couldn't get a PP's personal protective equipment to all of the other essential employees because we didn't have enough that is the biggest lie that we bought and we started keep talking about. There's a global supply out there and we gave the city and state countless number of distributors. That has had reached out to us. And say hey. These cats never called us back able to get thousands upon thousands of donated personal protection equipment. I'm donating equipment to my hospitals. I'm donated to ACS employee school crossing guards. Correction officials. A nurse's why am I able to get it? And they're unable to purchase it on the largest large scale. The urgency was never us? There was never planned. I want you to go back and look at the brief instrument. Everyone there was never a plan. You have to fight this virus on two fronts. You have to fight it as it intervention for those who have it you have to intercede and assist them and then you have to fight it. As pregnancy there was never a prevention plan we never which communities that had lodged a preexisting conditions. And say his plan so that you won't be Sade. We want testing it out communities we were telling our mothers and grandmothers. Okay you know what go back home. They went back home and many of them died. We would not providing the food to them. We would not using telemedicine so there was no plan for the seventy percent is so that close. We got corona virus. He went home to an overcrowded apartment with his children and families in his grandmother because remember folks are living in three or four generations and he let them. They went to the hospitals. Like in Queens. Will you have a high immigrant? Community Sunset Park High Immigrant community a Central Brooklyn high immigrant community all of these essential employees infected. Their family members were not diagnosed. So they can cortina themselves because we were not tested. Remember we put out an order. That said we only gonNA test you. You emit if you're admitted to the hospital and then we didn't admit you to the hospital we sent you home. It was. This was the greatest experiment on black and Brown people sister to ski experiment. Yeah this is so fucked up. It's really really insane. And you recently wrote an op Ed. That I found super interesting and I thought it was a really good topic to talk about like you have all the essential workers success so evident and everyone's on the subway and stuff but you are also talking about how Because you know people of Color live in these food swamps and have less access to healthy foods that that would treat underlying illnesses in the first place and I thought that was such an interesting and important thing to also touch upon. Because you know I'm coming from this space only my professional capacity. I'm coming from in my personal capacity. You know had type two diabetes. I lost my sight and my left try. They told me I was going to be blind in the year. Had permanent nerve damage in my hands and feet of the Detroit. I was going going to lead to amputation at an ulcer. High blood pressure high cholesterol. The Black and Brown package and when the doctors told.

"Let's move onto our second guests who is no stranger to Albany, by the way. And that is Brooklyn borough president, Eric Adams. Thanks for joining us here on WBAI. Great speaking with you. So you are a former state Senator, which probably people who followed your career. No well, but what's your, what's your reaction to what we've seen come from Albany, especially these last couple of days on the on the rent regulations? Arm still. On it. I was in news all day, but just from what I heard a real, we are clearly reaching in, in a direction. We we're looking at how to ensure a lawns affair. When you look at the various areas, everything from MCI to think she d control many of these areas going back to the days when tell seven that's was there. An critique gather in sweeping Crump of bills that never really made it to the floor on able to pass them. And so I think that with the Senate democrat control, as well as their simply at with the large enough voting block, it makes it easier to accomplish the task. And I think they should be happy for the results that they won't fall into so much onto tickets to see a great deal things done. If he continued to be take control of the Senate. So over the next few days, Mr President, there is a lot left to be done potentially. In Albany, a lot of big ticket items still metabol- when you think about that list. The people rattle off of marijuana legalization driver's licenses for the undocumented charter cap, fifty a what would you say are your priorities? What do you want Albany to do? What do you think they absolutely must do before they go home June nineteenth. Not really hasn't been a communicated a lot. But when we need to look there in the fair fund for education on far too long, although there was a campaign for fiscal equity. We'd never did get out to and the numbers. Just don't add up on you. Look at the numbers, they come to New York City, I think it is important that we visited that says an opportunity when should get their share in education educational dollars and to that legalization of our honors import. With a clean up the records of those who were arrested. Of we give people an opportunity to go on with their lives. And all you have a police record hanging over your head infects, the quality of life around, employment and other areas that a person could be up to visit society. I think which take a very close look at how we're going to deal when. The prison reform is so much more. We, we can do around prison reform. That no one should be ELD on bail and they arrested for non violent. Crime is other ways. We should that they were hearing. And what and I think going even deeper in prison reform is something that I think they should look at it as well. And correct me if I'm wrong, but you have come out and support for extending driver's licenses to, to all to including undocumented immigrants. I'm sorry you broke up. Correct me if I'm wrong. But you've come out in support of driver's licenses for all, including undocumented immigrants that something, you want to see them get done. It just think about it for a moment. It's an economic win, because it allows fusion of a real tax dollars on allowing undocumented immigrants. Who have driver's license and allowed them to not live in the shadows of employment. They're driving. Anyway. They're on the road. We don't know how many run incidence chats to a person having their driver's license on, we're able to forms of identification. Like the municipal ID program is shows that people are willing to step out of the shadows of government is hard enough with the energy, that's coming from all the as anti immigrant is should not be saying, yeah, I think it's a real win. It allows to be on the road would do with reporting incidents and accidents, allowing people to be employed. And this win win all the way around if we're able this happened during the session. So as Albany, winds toward the ends of its session. And if it session the city is moving toward its annual budget deadline. I'm curious with the city budget as. The topic what are your priorities there? Where do you want to see what the mayor has proposed shoring up or shaved off what what are your suggestions for? The city is spending plan for next year. Several areas that I believe is important to one and what was always the important with me and education. We have to do more in early childhood education and of really it's more than just pre K three K. I'm hoping the mayor inner city council look at zero three model that we have been talking about, and other educational experts have been also talking about we're not doing enough in early childhood education. We. We're we're, we're losing you in and out there borough president Adams. Yep. That's pretty good. I was saying that a child's brain develops between the ages of zero to three yet, we do not have this fall. We've not showing parents with the. And so when we look at early childhood education that is the area. I'm hoping of that we, we can look towards also equity equity in those pre K. Not, you'll reap the local community based organization and nonprofit of we believe they should receive an echo of pay equivalent to the pre K program that the department of education is unfair that we're not doing that, and send the wrong message in the process, and that seems to be maybe the biggest sticking point between the city council and the administration. These budget negotiations is that so-called pay parody for the early childhood educators, as you say, in the in the CBO versus the DOE schools. Do do you have a sense of, of what the holdup is there is that really just a the to Bosnia administration, not wanting to make the financial commitment, there that would then basically be expected going forward? Or do you have any sense of what the holdup is on? On that pay parody. Unfair to continue to have many of these local communities organizations are in oppourtunities, when you need to ensure that I'll teaches school in these location in pre K locations, receiving the same salaries that same level of paint that they can't apart are receiving not believe another important area. I look at we can't continue to feed the crises in all city and something that really has been below the radar of when you look at the conversation around close Rikers and the mayor's proposing to open digital sales in four of the boroughs, but we also look at closing the pipeline their fees like righteous almost thirty to thirty five percent of the men and women who all Iraqis island there dyslexic. So if we prop. Really address the issue of not giving them the service at the beginning of the educational of opportunities, then we could actually start dealing with the process feed in rank is in the first place. Many of them leave school because they don't in properly identified as being dyslexic. They not even the service, they start doing petty crimes in a lead to logic crime, and so close in a facility without closing the pipeline. There sees facility is, is not going to solve the problem is only going to create in containing create the crisis, and that, that is also true for those enforce it can who age out those foster care, young people wage out, they become victims of criminal behavior, or they participating criminal behavior by allocating fifty million dollars to give them. What's called life coaches. It would allow them to get the support that they need right now only three percent of those who age out of foster care, or who are in force the care. Actually graduate from college, and that is just a real indicator that there's no future for them. If we we're not giving them the support that they need on the topic of the mayor's borough jails plan, replacing Rikers with facilities in four of the five boroughs last week, you chaired a borough hearing on that people expressing their views on the plan to expand facility that already has a jail footprint in your borough. I know your recommendations are, are, are do soon. What is your take on the proposal, overall and the specific plan for your borough? And I would be unfair to me without hearing all of the stakeholders involved before we produce a report, it gives the opinions that I'll never willing to listen to people already had my mind made up, and I don't think that way. And so I'm going to hold off on say without formal position is until I have an opportunity to hear from all the stakeholders ball is very complex conversation because, as we bring down until the number of those who are incarcerated in Rikers island of, we want to be a really responsive to the needs of the community and at the same time hopeful with the plan to close. Right. And so we will be given a formal report and at that time, it would it would be clear on without position sticking with the close Rikers plan and public safety, your former member of the NYPD and, you know, been outspoken on criminal Justice issues and policing. Issues. Do you have any thoughts right now in terms of some of the discussions that are, that are happening? The reforms that happened in Albany. The plan to get the New York City jail population down to around four thousand as the mayor believe recently predicted, it could get with the with the new changes out of Albany on bail in discovery. Do you have any concerns that things are swinging too far in the other direction? With public safety. You should should move at the right pace. We can't allow emotions to actually generate the policy. I was cleared under the former speaker speaker, every till I was cleared with her, that there was no reason we were turn and see some as his in criminal court summonses into warrant of we partnered with as we move out city away from that, that was a big mistake. If someone of receive a summons of for a particular fence, and they did not showing call if they would have shown up in court of they would not have a permanent, Mark on the record. They didn't show up in court. They will have a permanent marker erected, anywhere have a warm, and I knew that was a big mistake, particularly when we look at how we were issuing summonses also petty crimes of based on the area of the city that a person happened to this. That's the same way I feel about a decreasing. Of the prison population in Rikers. I don't believe that a person who commits a nonviolent act as I said earlier should be incarcerated, right? 'cause merely because they do not have enough money to pay for bell. I think that's wrong. It's the wrong way to, to go those who commit predatory crimes, and clearly those late lovely burglary homicide from all these assault kidnapping of they should be incarcerated as I don't believe that we should ignore that. And of there's some people who say, we don't need jails at all of these are reasonable and you wanna be in jail. I do not subscribe to that they're up police city of New York, and I don't want to return to the days of when we were all riding around with no radio signs, and all.

"It all started with sixteen year old environmental activists, Greta thune Berg last August Thornburgh started skipping school in Friday's to protest outside Sweden's parliament, insisting her country get behind the Paris climate agreement. Her protests have inspired thousands of young people around the world to join Fridays for future. That's a hashtag Fridays for future movement skipping school Fridays to demand that their governments take action against climate change. And today those young people are taking steps. Well, a step further joining together across more than ninety countries twelve hundred cities for a global youth climate strike, it's happening in cities across the world as we speak, including here in New York where we have our guests. Eric Kaplan science reporter for the Washington Post on the scene in Manhattan's Columbus circle. Hi, sarah. Hey, IRA, tell us what the scene is like where you are. How many students are there? What's going on? We could probably hear in the background noise. It had pretty busy. I guess there are about a thousand if not more. You didn't hear lots of them have posters. They're chanting. You know, we are the youths. We are the future we want climate change action on climate change now. And yeah, they're they've been sort of pouring in from all over New York. There were ten protests around the city this morning. Noor kind of coalescing at this rally here at Columbus circle headed how did he get organized? There was it all online and people know to come yet. So a lot of it is online here in New York. The protests really started with a young thirteen year old named Alexandria of in your she has been protesting in front of the United Nations headquarters every Friday inspired by Lindberg, and she is part of one of the national leaders of the US climate strike movement. And so, you know, they offend organizing online. But also a lot of inhabit organically people find out about it because they thought on Reddit or Twitter or they read a newspaper article, and they're like, well, I want to organize a strike in front of my school or in front of Brooklyn borough hall. Do you have any students there? We might speak with. Yeah. I see so Simone is right here. I'm gonna get the phone to her. Hi. Hi there. Welcome to science Friday. Tell us about why. You're there. I'm here because climate change is an issue. That's real very real and our elected officials and. Aren't doing anything about it? And. We may not at this age has a chance to put in a ballot vote. But we still have a voice, and this is how we're going to use it at get across. Message that changes coming whether they like it or not like Greta fed, and we're ready to take action and do whatever it takes. The letter voice be heard and make a difference on the world. Do you? Do you have the support of your teachers or parents and doing this because I understand you're thirteen? Yeah. So my parents are in full support of best. And some of my teachers are at one of my teachers my humanities teacher. Actually, here's the one who inspired us to start striking school because he got us into this and was teaching us about Greta and how out santeria strikes every Friday, and he's been folks affordable. Do you think that you can have any real influence on the future of climate change? I think so because every person can make a difference every price invoice matters at if you think that your voice doesn't matter. Then no one's ever gonna make a difference. And no one's ever gonna change. Because as everyone thinks that nothing's ever going to happen. And. Everything adds up. Everything makes a difference in the ad that I think that's why it has already grown so much. If you look at how many people are even here today and across the world, it's really inspiring.
