Recently, the European Union held elections for a new parliament. EU citizens, especially younger generations, aren’t on the best terms with their representatives, and feel unrecognized by significant parties like the CDU, the most popular German party. It’s been criticized for empty promises, incompetence, and not acting on the interests of younger people. German Youtuber Rezo created an hour-long video where he exposes the CDU with detailed information and arguments, all backed up with sources. Rezo started a huge public debate, to which the CDU reacted by making false accusations, including claiming Rezo’s followers and viewers were all bots. Through Youtube, Rezo reached the younger generation and lead to an increase of political participation in Germany, which is very important. As a German teenager, I see how important it is to get involved in politics in order to prevent parties like the CDU from ruining our future.
