Climate Strike - 21 May 2021

Stand up with us!
 
Climate for Change will be striking for climate action on May 21 in Melbourne.
 
To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation to join us, as we walk together with people everywhere standing up to confront the climate crisis when our leaders won’t.
 
Australia is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis: prolonged drought, flash flooding, catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have a government that is promoting a 'gas-fired recovery' that puts our climate at risk.
 
So, on May 21, school students are inviting everyone to join them in an Australia-wide #ClimateStrike.
 
By taking time off school and work together around the country, we’ll show our leaders that people everywhere want climate justice and we’re not going away until we get it. We’ll strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, First Nations people, young people, mining communities and more.
 
Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.
 
See you on Friday May 21 to strike for climate justice!
 
We will meet at the base of the Sir William John Clarke Memorial in the Melbourne Treasury Gardens at 12:30pm.
