Canberra – Global #ClimateStrike

September 13, 2019

Global Strike for Climate – Friday 20 September 2019, 12 noon to 2 pm – Glebe Park, Canberra

On September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join them for the biggest ever global #ClimateStrike.

Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. On March 15, 1.6 million students went on strike around the world. On September 20, the movement is going to the next level. If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join in.

Everyone who cares about a safe climate future is invited to join the Global #ClimateStrike on September 20 – people around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t.

Australia is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought. Flash flooding. Catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But just at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.

By taking time off school and work together around the world, we’ll show our politicians that people everywhere want climate justice and we’re not going away until we get it. Strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, first nations people, young people, mining communities and more.
