President Donald Trump signed an order this week to dismantle environmental protections at the EPA and essentially undo Barack Obama’s climate change legacy. Well, Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui has a thought or two in response to this news, which has, unsurprisingly, angered a lot of people. 

The 20-year-old posted a powerful message on Instagram, detailing the importance of protecting the environment and why she fundamentally disagrees with the Trump administration. Jauregui wrote, “I am angry almost every day I wake up to a barrage of new things this government is trying to dismantle and create to oppress the American people.” She then adds, “We are ALL affected by the destruction of our planet.”

When the EPA was created, it was done so as a response to our rivers and lakes being so toxic they were FLAMMABLE; meaning the water was not water at all but a bunch of chemicals. When we forget about Gaia, we play ourselves. Humans weren't created to eat money off of the plates of the rich, humans were created to experience life and their beautiful home of planet earth. They're brainwashing you into thinking you'll ever be as rich as them; you won't be because you will never be as ruthlessly inhumane. The billionaires in our government don't care that you can't afford your medication, they don't care that you're getting sick because of your water, food and air being poisoned with an immense amount of chemicals. Clean water, organic food and clean air is not a "right" that should be advocated for, it is the natural state of the world before we industrialized humanity. In fact, their level of indifference is so great that they continue to repeal things put in place for the protection of the people and propose dangerous policies that leave you with smaller wages, higher taxes (except the rich, they get a tax cut lol), unaffordable health care, and a poisoned food and water supply. This is a dangerous fascist era we're in and while we may not feel the effects right this second, (although many are), there are going to be grave consequences for our children and grandchildren. It's sad everyone has been dumbed down so much that what celebrities are doing or hooking up with is more important than the fact that our Earth and Democracy are dying. I am angry almost every day I wake up to a barrage of new things this government is trying to dismantle and create to oppress the American people. I am sad every day that we allowed this to happen and that some people still have the audacity to support this administration. We are ALL affected by the destruction of our planet. I encourage you to educate yourselves about what is going on right now because this fuckery's been out of hand since day one but continues to worsen by the day. Keep your energy light and pray all you can to Creator for the strength to help combat the overwhelming evil that has stained our country's heart.

She further explained, “Clean water, organic food and clean air is not a ‘right’ that should be advocated for, it is the natural state of the world before we industrialized humanity.”

Her post ends on a somewhat hopeful note: “Keep your energy light and pray all you can to Creator for the strength to help combat the overwhelming evil that has stained our country’s heart.”

Keep inspiring others to speak up, Lauren.
