We would like to share this with you all:
“Dear Zero Waste North West,
Extinction Rebellion NI and Fridays for Future NI are inviting you and
your organisation to join us for this year’s Global Climate Strike
happening Friday 15thSeptember on the streets of Belfast City Centre,
marching from Custom House Square to City Hall at 12pm.
People across thousands of towns and cities around the world will march
together to demand a future without fossil fuels. A future that is green
and sustainable for all life on Earth.
This summer has seen unprecedented levels of climate refugees, record
breaking temperatures, wildfires and flooding that have claimed the
lives of hundreds of people and displaced thousands more.
We demand Climate justice which also means social justice, gender
justice and racial justice. A just transition for workers, indigenous
communities, and reparations made for Most Affected People and Areas
(MAPA) by the climate crisis who are also the least responsible for it.
Our clean air, fresh water, and food security are all under threat, even
our right to protest about it.
Northern Ireland has its own role to play in securing a liveable future
by stopping our own greenhouse gas emissions. Ecocide happening here
directly contributes to loss of life globally, such as gold mining,
dumping raw sewage in rivers and lakes, plastic pollution, intensive
farming, bottom trawling, deforestation, emissions from coal, oil, and
This is a call to action from Indigenous and First Nations, youth
activists, civil society organisations, social movements, feminist and
migrant rights groups, trade unions, faith institutions, academic
centres, health institutions, people of all genders and backgrounds,
everywhere. We need all hands-on deck to win this fight!
