The Santa Cruz Global Climate Strike Coalition announces a day of walkouts and events on September 27, 2019. Inspired by young people around the world and accelerating climate crisis, a dozen local organizations have partnered with local youth to plan and participate in global action, and demand governments and culpable corporations take immediate steps to reverse the climate crisis.
On Friday, Sept. 27, after UCSC students return, students of all ages will be walking out of school, and walking and busing to downtown Santa Cruz. We converge at Wells Fargo Bank, a major funder of the fossil fuel industry, at 74 River St at 2:15 pm. Youth will speak, and Extinction Rebellion Santa Cruz will stage a “Death at Your Door” Action at Wells Fargo.
From there, students and community members will march through downtown Santa Cruz, stopping at Amazon, creators and supporters of climate chaos, and Looker/Google, enabler/supplier of tech support to the largest greenhouse gas emitter, the U.S. military. Protesters will use art and performance to illustrate connections between corporations and the climate crisis. Democratic Socialists of America Santa Cruz and Science for the People will be leading these actions.
The march will continue to the Santa Cruz Farmers Market parking lot at Lincoln and Cedar streets where youth will create a Green Commons expressing their hopes for a just and earth friendly future. A Bike Parade will leave at 5:30 pm while the Green Commons will close down at 7 pm.
The Santa Cruz Global Climate Strike Coalition invites the greater Santa Cruz community to join this action.
