„Whether we like it or not“

For a long time, the „young generation“ in Germany has been criticized for being unpolitical. Nevertheless, the striking students of „Fridays for Future“ are still not taken seriously by many politicians. The European elections in 2019 have demonstrated that it is about time to do so. With these photos (published in Zeit Online 06/2019), I want to give a face to the strikers and show that the people who will be affected most by the effects of climate change are not anonymous masses. What does the strike mean for the demonstrators and what motivates them to take to the streets week after week?
