Our house is on fire. The climate crisis is an emergency, and our leaders are not taking sufficient action to prevent it becoming a catastrophe.
So join us this September, as millions of us walk out of our homes and workplaces to join young people in the streets for the biggest global climate strike yet.
What you can do
A motion is going to TUC congress in early September asking for a nationwide 30-min stoppage for the environment. If that passes and you are in a union you will have national support to walk out of your workplace and attend the rally. If you're in a workplace dispute you could make 20 September a day of action or walkout. And while it may sound odd to strike with the boss's permission, some workplaces, e.g. Portsmouth Council, are giving employees permission to leave work to attend local rallies.
Tell young people about the youth strike on the day, and if appropriate please send a letter into school giving your child permission to strike.
If none of the above apply, come to the rally anyway. A big gathering will give people confidence to join us as we fight for our future.
On the day
Adults are meeting the youth strikers at Falsgrave corner (11:30am) to march to the town centre for a rally (midday), which will be followed by a beach litter pick and beach art.
Family friendly. Invite your colleagues, friends, family, clubs, and community.
