JOIN THE REVOLUTION, AND STRIKE FOR THE PLANET

The Global Climate Strike is taking place on September 20th. Another strike, International Earth Strike will take place on September 27th. Find a strike happening near you by visiting this website.

Here are just a few reasons why you should take part in both:

  • 94% of the warmest years on record happening since 2001

  • 50+ thousand air pollution related deaths that the UK has contributed to

  • 12 years until global climate impact is completely irreversible

  • 10% of the world’s population will be climate refugees by 2050, with rising sea levels and crop failure

  • Just 100 companies are responsible for over 70% of the greenhouse gas emissions on the planet

  • 200 species go extinct every day, 1000 times the natural rate

  • By 2048 there will be no fish left in our oceans at the current rate of over-fishing and pollution

  • Global heating of 4C by 2100 is a real possibility

  • Humanity used its natural resource budget for the entire year by July 29th

Strike because you care about your grandchildren, and any generations that will follow you. Strike because this is nothing short of a crisis and emergency, and we need to show the government that we are serious. Strike because everyone should care about the planet that we live on. Strike for climate justice.
