    12 yr Old Boy Fighting to get vote out for Obama

     
    In these final hours 12 year Xiuhtezcatl Martinez a boy from the Aztec tradition is fighting for the survival of his generation by helping to get the vote out for Obama through this video he made to help pursaude undecided voters, Latino's, Native Americans, and all those that care about the kind of world their kid is going to be left with to vote for Obama. In his video, he plays a short piece of Obama from the Democratic convention and a short piece of Romney during the Republican convention, of their feelings about climate change.

    Xiuhtezcatl is a environmental activist since the young age of six, and id everything in his power to help get Obama elected during his first term when Xiuthezcatl was only 8. He was the youngest speaker on UN panels at the Rio+20 UN summit in Brazil and called by media from many countries the most inspiring speaker to attend the summit.

    He is fighting for the survival of his generation and he states "It is not fair for the adults to have a party on the planet and leave it for his generation to clean up"

    He filed a lawsuit against the state of Colorado where he lives, and the Federal Government for not protecting the atmosphere and the environment. He lost in Colorado, but the Federal Case is not going to Supreme Court in DC. He went to Washington DC and got public support of over 80 congressmen and woman in his lawsuit.
