(Vice)   Fed up with adults who are acting like idiots during a global pandemic, thousands of students are protesting nationwide. It's like France in 1968 but without Eva Green in The Dreamers   (vice.com) divider line

There should be several million students doing that across this country.

Protesting the lack of Eva Green? Damn right they should be!

I can't say as I disagree with them, but nobody can tell me anyone from grade school to high school doesn't have a primary motivation of just getting out of school.

If the 'rona isn't killing your stupid antivaccine parents fast enough maybe out them on social media as the idiots they truly are. Its not like they were going to help you pay for college anyway.

They learned something and were able to properly apply it.

Ha ha ha ha you idiots.

If you really wanted to make changes you'd have been protesting 20 years ago.

Now it's too late and it's all your fault for having not been born yet!

Kids don't want to be in school? When did this happen?

I agree with the sentiment but should millions of people gather in one place to protest people gathering together?

The teacher didn't show up to class so they waited 15 minutes and per federal law they could walk out legally.

Apparently they're "gathering" by playing Among Us. Little chance of catching the rona that way.

My daughter's school system sent a message to parents on Monday that bus service was cancelled.

On Tuesday they said that school was cancelled until next Tuesday. But all athletic events (that generate revenue) are still on schedule.

It's the cowards in the school boards and in local and state government that won't require vaccines for kids to attend school because it's an election year and they don't want to rustle the jimmies of people who vote for them.

I was unaware that they developed a vaccine that prevents you from catching and spreading covid.

GOOD.

I hope they grow up to realize what a farkin' lie this country is, and burn it down and build something better when they get older. Something that's actually responsible towards and responsive to its people. My generation's not going to, sadly.

I think Eva Green, Helen Mirren, and Jenny Agutter all have their movie contracts written the same way. They will only appear in movies where nudity is required.

In some respects, it is harder to find Eva Green screen shots that are SFW than NSFW.  Her filmography is of roles where, thankfully, she doesn't shy away from displaying skin.

I never realized until just now that her face was in that scene.

I feel bad for her twin sister. even though she is modest and keeps to herself everyone on the planet knows what she looks like naked because Eva has no shame.

I wish they would do that here. We just received an email that said that there is so many students out sick with covid, that our district isn't going to do contact tracing anymore... because it is too much work.

Good idea. Stop the spread by not reporting it.

Yes. Florida.

Speaking as someone who would have to somehow survive in that house while it's burning, I applaud your desire but question the logic of your process.

The house is already killing us. It's a machine designed to extract profit, not be concerned one bit for the occupants.

Long term grinding horror - or short term upset in exchange for stopping the machine and building something more healthy. It's like surgery.... Surgery sucks, but letting the tumor continue to grow and spread is going to suck way more in the long run.

I get that back in the day, not caring about sh*t was cool, but it's not cool any more. And young people just think you're out of touch, uncaring assholes. Given the way too many Gen X'ers act, they're not wrong.

The stats say otherwise.  When the red line crosses the 60% threshold, then I might agree.

Good.

Just another reminder, that Rome's Plebs didn't get their rights by using the legislative process, which was designed to prevent them from winning.

Pleb got their rights, and ultimately prevailed in the Class War, through a series of well-timed general strikes.

When an enemy approaches the city wall, the 1% very quickly realizes how much they need the 99%. And rich motherfarkers are usually smart enough to know they're far better off sharing some of what they have with us than losing everything they own to them.

Took them about three times to learn this lesson, but they did.

austerity101: I wonder why they're not voting, when neither part gives much of a sh*t about them. And when their voting is hampered by various laws and regulations that make college students voting difficult, if not impossible.

Oh, and young people are poor and are working like 10 jobs just to survive and don't have the time to get off of work to even go f*cking vote.

But yeah, it's their fault.


Young people have NEVER had high voter turnout numbers -- even when the economy was great and Republicans were not actively trying to stop people from voting.
