Global Climate Strike (November 29th)

Fridays for Future

Nov. 28, 2019, 7 p.m. - Nov. 29, 2019, 6:59 p.m. EST

After more than 7 million people went on climate strike around the world the week of September 20th, Fridays for Future, the Youth Climate Strike movements, and all of our international friends and allies are going on global climate strike again on Friday, November 29th. Mark and add it to your calendar. Students, workers, and adults everywhere, please: we are asking you to join us and walk away from a system that is destroying our planet and will threaten the survival of millions of people, plants, and animals within the next 10, 20, 30 years. We don’t feel like we have a choice: it’s been years of talking, countless negotiations, empty deals on climate change and fossil fuel companies being given free rides to drill beneath our soils and burn away our futures for their profit. Politicians and fossil fuel companies have known about climate change for decades. They have willingly handed over their responsibility for our future to profiteers whose search for quick cash threatens our very existence. This crisis is very real, and it cannot be ignored any longer. We have learned that if we don’t start acting for our future, nobody else will make the first move. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Once again our voices are being heard on the streets, but it is not just up to us. We feel a lot of adults haven’t quite understood that we young people won’t hold off the climate crisis ourselves. Sorry if this is inconvenient for you. But this is not a single-generation job. It’s humanity’s job. We young people can contribute to a larger fight and that can make a huge difference. We can't do this with you and everyone you know. So this is our invitation. On Friday, November 29th we will again come together in a unified, global climate event and strike for climate around the world. We’re asking adults to step up alongside us. There are many different plans under way in different parts of the world for adults to join together and step up and out of your comfort zone for our climate. Let’s all join together, with your neighbors, 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. Our momentum has to continue. Last year’s UN intergovernmental panel on climate change’s special report on global warming was clear about the unprecedented dangers of going beyond 1.5C of global heating. Emissions must drop rapidly – so that by the time we are in our mid- and late-20s we are living in a completely transformed world. But to change everything, we need everyone. It is time for all of us to unleash mass resistance – we have shown that collective action does work. We need to escalate the pressure to make sure that change happens, and we must escalate together. So this is our chance – join us on climate strike again this November. People have risen up before to demand action and make change; if we do so in numbers we have a chance. If we care, we must do more than say we do. We must act. This won’t be the last day we need to take to the streets, but it will be a new beginning. We’re counting on you. As we get closer to November 29th and more local information on events, actions, and strikes are available and get planned we will be sharing them here on Brightest.
