Beyond woke!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: This old mutt reckons the recent announcement of the reasons that the School Strike 4 Climate Auckland group is disbanding is beyond incredible.

According to this woke group of whining Auckland school kids... "under the suggestion and guidance of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) members of our group, we are not holding any more climate strikes in the Auckland region," the group said in a statement.

"We are disbanding because, since 2019, SS4C AKL has been a racist, white-dominated space. SS4C AKL has avoided, ignored, and tokenised BIPOC voices and demands, especially those of Pasifika and Māori individuals in the climate activism space..."

The Hound reckons members of this group sound like the future Labour and Green MPs of the future - god help us all!
