“What life do we want? A 30-year loan for a pavilion? An electric SUV? And then a burnout at 40? ". Students all



During the graduation from the great engineering school AgroParisTech in Paris, students held a speech against "a training that globally pushes to participate in the ongoing social and ecological devastation", in a video published on May 10.

They refuse "destructive professions" to which their school predestines them and call on their comrades to join them in ecological struggles in the face of the climate emergency.

A denunciation of the system

“AgroParisTech trains hundreds of students every year to work for the industry in various ways: Tampering with plants in the lab for multinationals that reinforce the enslavement of farmers.

Design prepared meals and then chemotherapy to cure the diseases caused.

Or count frogs and butterflies so that concrete workers can make them disappear legally.

These jobs are destructive and to choose them is to harm by serving the interests of a few.

Yet it is these opportunities that have been presented to us throughout our course at AgroParisTech »

And promoting other ways

"To you who often think this world is crazy, who want to do something but didn't really know what?

We want to tell you that you are not the only ones who find something wrong and we refuse to serve this system.

We decided to look for other paths, our own path”

"Let's not wait for our kids to ask us for money to go shopping in the metaverse, because we won't have made them dream of anything else" "Let's not waste our time" "It's up to you to find your way of branching off"

A very strong and voluntary speech that will not fail to make you think.
