Solidarity with School Students’ Global Climate Strike-meet Friday 20th September 12.45pm  – 1.30pm on the steps of Southend Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend on Sea

Friday 20th September is the day of the Global Climate Strike by school students demanding action on climate change.

Show your solidarity with their action by joining us for a lunchtime event between 12.45 and 1.30 pm on Friday 20th September on the steps of Southend Civic Centre in Victoria avenue. We want to see as many trade union banners, flags, union members and campaigners there as we can.

We are fighting for the future of the planet and humanity. We cannot leave school students to fight alone. Students and workers together can build a movement powerful enough to get system change not climate change.

We will be gathering in solidarity with the school students that will be striking globally on this day please make sure you join us.

At 1pm we will be joining the National Alarm that is to be sounded at the same time across all events nationally – be there – we need to act together to avoid climate chaos. Click on the link to hear more from up and down the country

Let’s heed the words of Greta Thunberg and 46 activists form the international school strike movement “This is not a single-generation job. It’s humanity’s job… Let’s all join together, with your neighbours, co-workers, friends, family and go out on to the streets to make your voices heard and make this a turning point in our history.” 

We are calling for the UK government to act on climate change. Not just to do something – to do enough to avoid climate chaos. This means investment not in new fossil fuels but in renewables – massive amounts. It means saving energy by insulating and converting all homes and all public and private buildings, and a shift from cars to public transport. It means a dedicated workforce to create this infrastructure – one million climate jobs. And it means the UK supporting a global agreement to cut warming emissions of all kinds, speedily, with fairness and justice.
