Greta Thunberg has added yet another string to her bow after collaborating with The 1975 on their latest single, which urges people to “rebel”. The 16-year-old activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee from Sweden – who kick started a global youth movement in 2018 in a bid to tackle climate change – reads from her essay on the track, urging people to act on climate change.
On the track, entitled The 1975, Thunberg says: “We have to acknowledge that the older generations have failed. All political movements in their present form have failed. But homo sapiens have not yet failed. Yes, we are failing, but there is still time to turn everything around.”
Thunberg continues: “We are facing a disaster of unspoken sufferings for enormous amounts of people. And now is not the time for speaking politely or focusing on what we can or cannot say. Now is the time to speak clearly. So, everyone out there, it is now time for civil disobedience. It is time to rebel.”
