Global Strike with children strikers, prior to the UN Climate Action Summit.

Venue: Across the World. For London Millbank, London, United Kingdom SW1P 3JA

Time: All day. For London be at Millbank at 11am or your group’s own arrangements.

Global Climate Strike explains that “Millions of school climate strikers have been leaving their classrooms every Friday. Now they hope that everyone else will join them in action. Going on climate strike means people everywhere walking out of their homes, their offices, their farms, their factories……”

people in 150 countries are organising for the global climate strikes this September. Some will spend the day in protest against new pipelines and mines, or the banks that fund them; some will highlight the oil companies fuelling this crisis and the politicians that enable them.  Others will spend the day in action raising awareness in their communities and pushing for solutions to the climate crisis that have justice and equity at their heart.  
On a grossly unequal planet, not everyone will be able to take a day off or take part in the same way. But we can all take a stand and make our voices heard.

The Strike is on Friday the 20th Sept. On Saturday the 21st September the UN is hosting a Youth Climate Summit followed by the main Climate Action Summit on Monday 23rd Sept and Greta Thunberg has sailed across the Atlantic especially to be there.

This UN summit is to kickstart the process for countries to make more ambitious pledges

so Climate Strikers need to make sure that the UK Government offers much more than the sound bites it currently talks about.

Business Green lists the UK actions that have been contrary to reducing green house gases “Parroting the line that the UK is ‘a world leader on climate action’ at the same time as maintaining fossil fuel tax breaks, hampering renewables development, and crassly attacking climate protestors as part of the Culture War is not a good look.” and Green GB week 2018 rebuttal table 10th Oct lists many ‘fake news’ claims up to last October.
