To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation 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, our Government wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.
So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join us for our biggest ever global #ClimateStrike.
And members of the Mt Hotham community will be supporting the strike.
Please join us for this fun, family friendly action.
Friday, September 20, 2019 at 12 PM – 1 PM
Meet at the summit of Mt Hotham.
If Summit closed due to weather condition, gathering will be moved to Koala Park (next to Basin Rail Park).
There is a facebook event page here.
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. We’ll 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.
Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. On March 15, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world. On September 20, we’re going to take our movement to the next level. If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.
See you on September 20 to strike for climate justice.
