Dunedin – School Strike 4 Climate
March 15 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Come to the STRIKE FOR THE CLIMATE and make your voice heard! Politicians around the world have taken the growing Climate Change crisis lightly, talking a lot but not doing anything about it (and in some cases going in the opposite direction with renewed partnerships with big oil companies to profit at the expense of the people (*Cough cough* Trump)). Therefore, it falls upon us, as the youth of Dunedin and the whole world to unite and RISE UP!
We demand that the New Zealand Government acts NOW to hold global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius before it is too late; scientists say that we have only 12 years before the disastrous effects of the Climate Change crisis become irreversible – let’s make those years count.
Rally with us to the Octagon, where we will meet at 12pm on Friday, March 15th. Our agenda does not only consist of chanting and making noise; there will be live music and speeches as well as activities such as letter writings and chalking up the streets.
All are welcome (not just High School students)! Bring along your friends and tell everyone you know. This global crisis demands urgent action, action to attract the attention of both the media, the wider community and put pressure on the government (which has to do so much more – and fast). So, let’s make this EPIC.
Please be aware that times are liable to fluctuate as we are working with a number of different high schools.
Note: LPHS students will be leaving school to march together to The Octagon at interval (11:15am) on Friday 15th March.
