On Friday 21 May 2021, Amnesty International Australia will be supporting School Strike 4 Climate (SS4C) by attending local rallies all over the country, and you’re invited to join us! Click ‘I want to attend’ to get all the details.
Here’s what SS4C says:
“Climate change is intensifying the risk of flooding and heavy rainfall and SS4C is calling on the Government to take our future seriously and treat climate change as what it is: a crisis.
The Morrison Government could be protecting our climate, land and water, and creating thousands of new jobs by growing Australia’s renewable energy sector and backing First Nations solutions to protect Country.
Instead, they are lining the pockets of multinational gas companies, which are fuelling the climate crisis, devastating our land and water, wrecking our health and creating very few jobs.
On May 21, we’re striking to tell the Morrison Government that if they care about our future, they must stop throwing money at gas.
All Strike events are COVID-safe and ask that attendees follow local restrictions, bring face masks and hand sanitiser, practice physical distancing of 1.5 metres, and stay home if they have cold or flu-like symptoms.”
