The Manitoba Youth for Climate Action need your support in hosting the Winnipeg contingent of the Global Climate Strike, taking place Friday, September 27th from Noon - 5pm at the Manitoba Legislative Building!
This winter, Manitoba Youth for Climate Action began striking from school on the first Friday of every month to demand adults take action to protect our climate. They were joined by hundreds of students across the province and 1.5 million students worldwide.
The youth have called on adults again to support and participate in a worldwide strike on September 27, which – in Winnipeg – will be a large-scale public demonstration on the steps of the Manitoba Legislature from Noon - 5pm! They are demanding that federal governments take emergency measures to fight climate change, and they need our help!
The message is clear: We cannot go about business as usual - our future is at stake and we need massive collective action to save it.
The time is now! Can you or your organization or workplace contribute to help Manitoba Youth for Climate Action hold their General Strike?
Costs include permits, equipment rentals (tents, sound system, washroom facilities), art supplies for banners and posters, medics & safety, ASL interpretation, musical acts, speakers and a large art installation that will dramatize the urgency of the climate crisis, etc.
