Greta Thunberg Shreds Neoliberal politicians

Jill Stein (via Facebook):

Greta Thunberg shreds neoliberal politicians: “We’re in the beginning of a mass extinction & all you can talk about is money & fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”

Endless growth is the ideology of cancer. To survive, we need a new system that puts people, planet & peace over profit.
