Bristol Youth Strike 4 Climate 21st June 2019

JOIN THE STRIKE

WHY

STRIKE?

For decades, politicians have failed to listen to the science.

The 2018 IPCC Report concluded that we need to keep global average temperature change to under 1.5 °C warming to avoid irreversible damage to the climate.

That same year, Greta Thunberg brought global attention to the climate crisis when she began striking from school every Friday outside the Swedish Parliament.

Striking for the climate has repeatedly brought the need for climate justice to the forefront of the media's attention. We all want an education but we also need a liveable planet. By striking from our schools, colleges and universities every few months, we can pressure the government and council into implementing real change.

 

As a form of civil disobedience, by striking we can force real change, just like unions have done in the past.

As the youth, we can make real change. As an adult, you can still help too. Join us in solidarity to demand climate action!

We began the Bristol climate strikes in February 2019, joining the quickly growing global movement. Since then we've held 11 more strikes, mobilising up to 30 thousand people onto the streets of Bristol.
