A remarkable 11 year old’s vow of silence

I have been deeply moved by the action of an 11 year old – Itzcuauhtli (Eat-Squat-Lee) Roske-Martinez who stopped talking October 27, 2014 “until world leaders take action on Climate Change”. Itzcuauhtli makes it clear that he thinks all of us are at least as important as world leaders for climate action – if not more so – than officially recognized world leaders. I will be joining him and thousands of others being silent on December 10 for the same purpose.
