For 8 Fridays this summer, from June 28th to August 16th, Earth Uprising is inviting all climate organizations and #FridaysforFuture movement strikers, to target their Friday strikes towards 8 different sectors of society.
This week’s strikes will call out the systems of oppression that enabled the climate crisis. The weekend of this strike, the ZERO HOUR MOVEMENT will convene their International Youth Climate Summit in Miami, Florida. This historic summit is also intended to create awareness of the local effects of the climate crisis, and the deeply rooted structural systems in society that have caused it. Miami, FL was chosen as the host because it is ground zero and will see some of the greatest effects of climate change in the USA, and in the shortest amount of time!
We are encouraging strikers to relocate, or theme, their Friday strikes to bring awareness to the areas of society requiring deep transformation to address the climate crisis prior to the United Nations Climate Summit in September 2019.
Each week Earth Uprising, and all the participants of #ClimateStrikeSummer, will be calling on the press, journalists, scholars, authors, researchers, politicians and many others, to comment and write about the issue of the week – with the greatest focus on a call for solutions.
This opportunity started on July 12, 2019, midnight and ended on July 13, 2019, midnight EDT and happens once. All events occur at an action's local time based on the latest information provided to us. The time listed here has been automatically converted to your device's timezone.
