Jan Barham, Broken Head.
I am heartened to see global youth activism demanding climate change action with the School Strike 4 Climate Action movement.
It is their future and they are justifiably outraged at governments not acting on their behalf to ensure a safe climate future.
In Byron Shire on Friday morning, November 30, there will be a school strike action taking place in Byron Bay. I’m honoured to be supporting young people and their protest.
Due to the short time frame for the action, a street march approval has not been possible but after gathering in Railway Park, they will be moving along the Jonson Street footpaths to Main Beach.
I am calling on community members who aren’t school students to be part of a support team to assist in the safe and successful protest on the day. If you are willing to assist in providing ‘marshalling’ along the footpath walk to ensure the safety of the event and avoid any negative impact in terms of traffic and business disruption, please contact me on [email protected], so we can organise to be an effective team supporting the youth of the shire.
We need to support young people, who don’t have the right to vote but are the generation that will suffer from the impacts ofg inaction on climate change. See https://schoolstrike4climate.com
