The Greens support the school students around the world who are going on strike for a safe climate.
Australia is in the thick of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought cripples farming communities. Flash flooding is creating chaos in cities. Catastrophic bushfires and severe cyclones threaten people’s homes. Heatwaves are sweeping the nation. Half the Great Barrier Reef is dead. And yet our politicians refuse to stop massive new fossil fuel projects like Adani’s coal mine.
So, on March 15, school students are walking out of school to tell our politicians to take all of us seriously and start treating climate change for what it is: a crisis and the biggest threat to our generation and generations to come.
School students are taking action and are calling on the whole community to show their support.
Greens MPs, members and supporters will be marching in solidarity with the striking school students. Join us.
Greens supporters will be gathering from 11:45am outside Treasury Cafe, next door to Old Treasury Building on Macarthur St, before joining the main rally.
