March 15th, Global Climate Strike For Future! Call to the youth of the world

In 2015, our governments committed in Paris to protecting our future by providing a safe pathway well below 2C with Social and Climate Justice.. Three years have passed, and our future looks bleaker than ever! The greedy guess that 3C warming is ok. Climate scientists have evidence that even 2C will cause massive starvation, drought, fire tornados, floods, wars and death.

All because today's adults do not care about tomorrow. They are stealing our future right in front of our eyes! The adults are not mature enough to tell it how it is, even this they leave to us children!

And why should we be studying for a future that soon may be no more, when no one is doing anything to save that future? And what is the point of learning facts when the most important facts clearly means nothing to our society? What use is education when our governments are not listening to the educated? Today we use 100 million barrels of oil every single day. There are no politics to change that. There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground. We can’t save the world by playing by the rules. Because the rules have to be changed.

Greta Thunberg has inspired us, by striking every Friday in front of her Swedish parliament. Since August, 2018, many thousands of students, have been striking in front of 300 parliaments and town halls in over 30 countries worldwide.

And now on March 15, we will all create a Deep strike together! To show the Climate Crisis is a Crisis! Join Us!

We are striking to tell our governments to do their homework and give us Proof!

We Need Proof of a safe pathway well below 2C! If adults can not provide proof, be honest, admit this failure and join our strike!

All honest adults, without Proof, will join our strike on March 15th! Tell your adults to support our strike, tell them they have to come with you, tell them you need them so that you can simply have a chance to survive in the future!

For 40 years, of all political colours, have been losing the war on climate change! Now there is only time to reduce the amount of disaster.

We Need Proof! Global Climate Strike For Future! Call to the youth of the world!

FridaysForFuture

What is Fridays For Future?

#FridaysforFuture is a peoples movement following the call from @GretaThunberg to school strike.

Why are kids striking?

School children are required to attend school. But with the worsening Climate Destruction this goal of going to school begins to be pointless.

  • Why study for a future, which may not be there?
  • Why spend a lot of effort to become educated, when our governments are not listening to the educated?

The basics on how/when/where to strike

Greta requests that people strike infront of their closest town hall, every friday. With a sign, take a picture and post it with the hashtags

#Fridaysforfuture
#Climatestrike

How supporters can support

Many people do not think they can strike, i.e. they are worried about their school grades. The Belgium schools all used clocks which then 'struck' and then took a picture and this was there method to strike on November 30. Other groups have other ways to find a way to strike, even churches have their bells strike! Some empathy strike. All support is welcome.

If you post your work with the hashtag #FridaysForFuture and #ClimateStrike we will be able to find and share your excellent work.
