While still people are voting in some countries, Germany has already chosen. The Greens celebrate rightly their “Sunday For Future” at the European Elections.
THE POWER OF THE YOUTH
Neither the conservative nor the left- and right-wing parties could reach their goals. Their problem? They didn’t take the young people serious. With weak and often outdated programs they couldn’t convince the generation under 30 years anymore.
With the Fridays For Future as well as Article 13 demonstrations, they showed that the environmental policy as well as their freedom in the Internet are essential issues. However, they weren’t discussed from the leading parties with respect. No one of the established politicians took time, to talk with the angry youth, which is afraid for their future.
Quite the contrary, representatives of the traditional parties called on the young people to go to school and to leave the discussions to experts. So wrong. Because, the young people have the right for a good future. Moreover, they are the future of us all.
Of course, the reaction was that the demonstrations grew, also in smaller cities. Furthermore, established YouTubers presented angry videos in which they called on their followers not to vote for the conservative and right-wing parties.
Those creative and active people are the future of their countries and Europe in particular.
A SUNDAY FOR FUTURE – THE GREENS WITH A GREAT RESULT AT THE EUROPEAN ELECTIONS
Hence, the party who had the vision to stop nuclear power and protect the environment already 39 years ago, gained the trust of the young generation. In current forecasts, among the voters under 30 years the Greens would be the leading party with a huge distance to the others.
VISIONARY AND AUTHENTIC
Their environmental protection program wasn’t the only reason for the success of the Greens. Besides that, they always remained true to themselves and their goals. Even when they did mistakes.
It’s a matter of fact, the young generation is tired of people who just talk about what others want to hear. The youth expects authenticity and honesty. But, as mentioned before, they expect it not only in politics, but also in economics. And, it’s very good.
However, still conservative parties as well as the right-wing populists will play a role in Europe. Thus, it remains to be seen how Europe will change during the next few years. Anyway, the voters helped to push Europe into a good direction. We are sure, it was just the beginning and today the Greens can enjoy their Sunday For Future in Germany.
