#CLIMATESTRIKE OCTOBER 15, 2021
#ChalkTheStreets of Geelong!!
All over the Geelong region, we are skipping school to chalk the streets; writing and drawing our messages on the pavement to demand urgent and meaningful action on the climate crisis.
Come grab chalk outside Geelong Town Hall between 11am-3pm on October 15, to write and draw your messages across the streets of Geelong CBD and MP's offices. Or join the protest in your local area/town to demand climate action all over the region!
The Morrison Government could be protecting the future of young people, whilst creating thousands of new jobs in Australia’s renewable energy sector, and backing First Nations led solutions to protect Country.
The latest IPCC report has shown we still have time to act on the climate crisis, but instead the Morrison Government has continued to hand out billions of dollars of public money in subsidies and funding to climate wrecking gas projects.
On October 15, we are mobilising thousands of young voters to put direct pressure on the Government and MPs, leading up to the next federal election.
The mining and burning of coal oil and gas are the biggest contributors to the climate crisis. In recent years we’ve seen unprecedented bushfires and floods, and the government has shown no intent to ease these disasters.
We will show the Government that #TheYouthAreRising, and more and more of us are voting.
Join us on October 15 to give the Morrison Government their last warning to act on climate.
Our October 15 plans will align with relevant COVID restrictions at that time. Keep checking back on this page for updates on this Strike!
