“We’re rising up and demanding change from those standing in its way“
OCTOBER 15 IS THE TIME TO TAKE ACTION!
The journey of fighting for climate action continues for School Strike 4 Climate (SS4C) and many young people around Australia.
The implications of the climate crisis are getting clearer and clearer every day, yet the government is continuing to fund this ecological collapse.
The SS4C are calling for:
1. No new coal, oil and gas project
2. 100% renewable energy generation & exports by 2030
3. Fund a just transition and job creation for all fossil-fuel workers and their communities
Bushfires, floods, and other climate disasters are so evident, yet the SS4C feel that the government is refusing to listen to the voices of concern. This is why we need SS4C are inviting us to strike with them. We are all angry. We are all scared. We are all anxious. We must act, urgently.
Strike together on October 15 to demand real action on the climate crisis!
We are in the thick of the climate crisis.
Yet our government continues to subsidise their mates in the fossil fuel industry, putting all of us at risk.
We are already seeing the impacts of climate change hurt those closest to us.
If we don’t take action now and transition swiftly away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy, things will only get worse. But it’s going to take all of us working together to succeed.
Australia is ranked last in the world on climate action.
If we do not take action now, Australia risks being left behind, resulting in economic and climate impacts beyond what we can comprehend.
The government thinks that our movement of young people can’t hurt them.
Think again. Thousands of us can now vote since our first strike in 2018, and that number is only going to grow.
Join us on October 15, two weeks before the COP 26 global climate summit
by taking the day off school, work or uni to tell the government that we’re serious about climate action, and won’t go away until they stop selling our futures.
More information on October 15 can be found on the SS4C website.
