Three days before world leaders meet in New York for a UN Climate Action Summit there will be a Global Climate Strike on Friday 20th September 2pm-4pm. This is more than a Students Climate Strike, people from all walks of life who care about a safe climate future are being asked to strike from their usual work and join large gatherings in numerous locations around Australia. On the day of the climate strike (prior to the big rally) an ARRCC multi-faith service will be held at 12.30pm (revised time) in Nicholas hall at Wesley Uniting Church in Melbourne CBD.
The student organisers here in Australia have three clear demands for our leaders:
- No new coal, oil and gas projects, including the Adani mine
- 100% renewable energy generation, and clean energy exports by 2030
- Fund a just transition & job creation for people who work in the fossil-fuel industry
