Canberra Uni Students Climate Strike

Friday, March 13, 2020 - 12:00

March 13, 12pm. Grassy End of University Avenue, ANU

Students across Australia have already mobilised in their hundreds of thousands demanding action on the climate. We're sick of seeing the government and the opposition defend and promote the coal industry, we are sick of protesters being arrested and our civil liberties being threatened. We're worried about the future of humanity in a world that won't stop prioritising profit over human need. We want action and we want it now.

Join us on March 13 as we walk out of uni and demand:
1. Shut down the fossil fuel industry
2. Make the Climate Criminals Pay
3. Fight for a just transition
4. Sack Scomo!

This protest takes place on the stolen Indigenous land of the Ngunnawal People. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging. We stand in solidarity with all Indigenous people and their struggles against land theft and genocide and for self-determination and justice. The fight for environmental justice is also a fight against racism and dispossession, and we say the solutions to the climate crisis are inseparable from sovereignty and justice!
