Global Climate Strike

#ClimateStrike in Newcastle, South Africa

Friday, September 20, 12:00 PM
NEWCASTLE, 2940, South Africa
Join us on 20 September, as millions of us in solidarity with young people forge ahead in building Custodians of Environmental Justice on A Massive Global Climate Strike. It's Now or Never, this is our Golden Opportunity to Save Ourselves from a Ward of Calamity. It's Planet: Earth or NOTHING!!!. We can't afford to be FOSSIL FOOLS. We need to act now to avoid catastrophic damage from climate change, we're putting pressure on policymakers and businesses to step up their response to global warming, which is boosting sea levels, making storms more violent and exacerbating poverty. The atmosphere is already almost 1 degree Celsius hotter than it was at the start of the industrial revolution and on track to rise 3 degrees by 2100. Together with young people, and faith-based groups, the New Castle Environmental Justice Alliance will be protesting outside the town mayors offices and will deliver a memorandum that calls on the municipality to commit to declaring New Castle as a coal-free and frack-free town.
