The main thing is that you can do something - and we students have got the power and the skills ...
Explanation: (...to change something)
I chose "the main thing" because this certainly was an emotional speech, and the speaker wanted to convince the (other?) students.
I say "you" because it is a more colloquial version for "one" (this is used when the speaker is included in the statement made), but maybe "we" (like in Mary's version) is even better,when the speaker wants to draw attention to the invovement of all of us.
I added the part "to change something", because it is expressing the intension of the speaker even stronger.
Hope this helps a little bit,
