GLOBAL CLIMATE CRISIS STRIKE WEEK
September 20-27, 2019 has been declared Global Climate Strike week,
with climate crisis actions happening across the nation and around the world as
the UN Climate Change Summit convenes in New York City.
Last August 2018, Swedish student Greta Thunberg, at just 15 years-old, sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks protesting the lack of action on the climate crisis. Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2-degree C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement.
Santa Cruz and Watsonville students are planning to join Greta Thunberg and millions of hopeful protesters around the world in a Global Climate Strike on September 20th, with more climate emergency actions happening throughout the week.
We want to involve as many people as possible. Join us!
