Global Climate General Strikes Begin Sept. 20, 2019

May 25, 2019

Youth Climate Strike, 350.org and other climate activists are calling for a general work strike and resistance protests starting 9/20/19

Climate activists are organizing the next phase of active resistance to the oblivious ‘business as usual’ politics that has failed us for decades and is now in the process of destroying our climate, our ecology, our future and our world.   They now recognize the need to disrupt business as usual as part of mobilizing the public and politicians to demand immediate action on the climate emergency-in-progress.

Here’s an excerpt from a call to action from Greta Thunberg and Youth Climate Strike Organizers published in the Guardian:

“..[T]o change everything, we need everyone. It is time for all of us to unleash mass resistance – we have shown that collective action does work. We need to escalate the pressure to make sure that change happens, and we must escalate together.

So this is our chance – join us on climate strike this September. People have risen up before to demand action and make change; if we do so in numbers we have a chance. If we care, we must do more than say we do. We must act. This won’t be the last day we need to take to the streets, but it will be a new beginning. We’re counting on you.”
