The team behind School Strike 4 Climate (SS4C) have a plan to Fund their Future and they need all of us to get involved! They’re inviting us all to join them on a Global Day of Action on Friday 25 September to stop the government's dirty gas plans and show them that Australians everywhere want them to #FundOurFutureNotGas!
Let’s Make Fossil Fuels History!
Right now the government is deciding how to spend public dough to help reboot the economy after the impacts of Covid. It is a really important decision - we can boost the economy by creating lots of green jobs, and secure our future by fast tracking climate solutions that we already know work.
Sounds good? Yes, we think so too, but the Government seems to be ignoring science and instead of investing in clean energy, they want to spend it on GAS. Yep - the dangerous fossil fuel that will continue to worsen the climate crisis and threaten our futures.
Global Day of Action - Join us!
There is still time to tell the government what we want and the team behind SS4C are making the following demands: No public funds for gas and other damaging fossil fuel projects. Instead, recovery funds should be spent on:
- Resourcing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led solutions that guarantee land rights and care for country
- The creation of jobs that fast-track solutions to the climate crisis and help communities recover
- Projects that transition our economy and communities to 100% renewable energy by 2030, through expanded public ownership
So how are we going to make sure the Government hear these demands? Join the Global Day of Action. The pandemic means that this is not about gathering in large numbers and there are many other ways we can make an impact. SS4C are calling on Australians to organise as many actions as we can of 10-20 people in Covidsafe gatherings. For people in lockdown, there are also ways you can organise online actions with your friends, find out how you can register for events in your area and find out more here!
