German Green Youth wants to give children the right to vote
The Green Youth has called for children to be able to vote in elections in the future. “Voting is a basic democratic right. This must apply to all people. Democracy means that you have a say in your own living conditions. We believe that it is wrong to legally deny a certain group this across the board,” said the spokesman for the Green Youth, Georg Kurz.

The Green offspring therefore strives to ensure that under 16s are also allowed to vote reported German magazine Spiegel Online. “The limit of 16 years is also set completely arbitrarily,” complained Kurz. “I know so many committed, politically educated people who are not yet 16 years old. And they are categorically excluded from the election.” He added: “Anyone who registers independently to vote can vote too.”
Kurz was bothered by the fact that the group of over 60 year olds in the country currently had significantly more votes than those under 30 year olds. “That is a blatant imbalance.”
The Greens chairman Robert Habeck had already spoken out in favour of lowering the voting age. In May 2020, he advocated voting rights from the age of 16. The same party is unironically opposed to child labour.
In the past few years, the Green Youth has caused a stir with their demands, including decriminalizing paedophilia. Last August, for example, they demanded comprehensive police reform because of “blatant abuses” in the security forces. According to them, officials should be monitored more closely in the future and no pepper spray should be used. Around a year ago, the Green Youth expressed solidarity with the left-wing extremist Antifa.
The Green Youth has meanwhile admitted to some mistakes in creating an advertising poster. In choosing the aesthetics, the necessary sensitivity had been lacking, admitted a spokesman for the Green Youth recently. Or perhaps they gave away too many clues about their origins.
The stumbling block was two illustrations that the Green Youth used for their spring congress, which took place at the end of April. One shows a dark-skinned man and a light-skinned woman next to a red flag with their gaze fixed on Utopia in true Soviet style. Above the slogan reads: “Many Struggles – One Fight”. The Green Youth of Freiburg was responsible for the motif.
In another picture, which was also published on the website of the Federal Association of the Green Youth, a woman and a man hold up their arms and grab a flagpole with a red flag. Here, too, the man is dark-skinned.
The choice of pictures of the Green Party offspring had caused outrage on social media. The main point of criticism was that the pictures were reminiscent of propaganda motifs from the Soviet era.
German tabloid Bild also took up the case with the headline “Green youth advertises with Lenin propaganda”. In both advertising posters, the Green Youth used two propaganda posters from the “All-Soviet Lenin Communist Youth Association – Komsomol,” the paper highlighted. Komsomol was the youth organization of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
The spokesman for the Green Youth replied to the newspaper that they did not know that these were motives of the communist youth of the Soviet Union. “We only became aware through your email that the said organization had used a similar motive 90 years ago,” they said in response to the allegations.
The Greens named an Adobe Stock collection as the source for the images. There these pictures are offered in a “Revolution Promoting Set”. In fact, some of the motifs, including the two chosen by the Green Youth, are pure unadulterated communist propaganda.
In the end, however, one question remained unanswered. Why did the Green Youth colour the man black in both pictures black? In the original from the Adobe Stock collection he is light-skinned. The spokesman for the Green Youth did not comment on this.
The posters are not the only hints as to the origins of the Greens. They have been involved in some very shady activities throughout their existence. Some 40 years ago, on May 11, 1981, the FDP politician Heinz Herbert Karry was murdered in his sleep. The investigation into this bloody act led directly to the Greens: Green party heavyweight Joschka Fischer’s private car had been used to transport the murder weapon.
And Brigitte Heinrich, EU member of the Greens and also working for the state security of the GDR, told her Stasi superiors in East Berlin, that she knew who the murderers were: People from her party.
Officially, communist, “left-wing extremist” and “revolutionary cells” admitted to the murder of Heinz Herbert Karry.
This current concealment of the violent and communist origins of the Greens linking it not only to the support groups of the Red Army Faction (RAF), but also to the notorious independent Maoist Communist League of West Germany (KBW), obfuscate the fact that the leading cadres of these groups were accepted by the Greens soon after the party was founded. Leading politicians of the Greens such as today’s Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann, or Reinhard Bütikofer, EU Member of the Greens, were active in these Maoist associations at the time, cheering on the Cambodian mass murderer Pol Pot.
This happens to be the same party that mercilessly judges its opponents morally. The Greens themselves are dead silent about their past and their former glorification of the RAF, Pol Pot and other revolutionary murderous gangs. Instead, they project an image of honest environmentalists who do not murder people in their sleep.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter.
