IWW Union 22nd August 2019

Donation from the Industrial Workers of the World union to Earth Strike. There are no jobs on a dead planet. System change not climate change!

Hope to be there - so impressed by the huge groundswell of support from young people - we 'oldies' must support them and the cause.

You melons, you bit more than you can chew haha (apologies for not getting involved the last few months, it's been a bit hectic here in Ireland. I'll be joining the union branches and I'll be peddling ES as much as I can while I'm here)

Julie Ward 17th August 2019

I am full of admiration for the young people behind this initiative. The urgent climate crisis requires bold action and the support of older generations.

Sarah Warren 12th August 2019

Yes, getting massive support is crucial. I fear that our future and that of our children hangs on the success of the UN summit on 23 September, so it is vital that we all support the global strike for our climate on 20 September, and I hope that the sheer numbers involved will sway our leaders into taking swift and decisive action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in time to stop us passing a 1.5 degree rise in global temperature.

Matt Walker 12th August 2019

We are so beyond having 'do nothing' as an option. I'm getting on but have two young kids. I owe them a future. It's the least I can do. Good luck team.

Cedric Knight 8th August 2019

A pity the target looks out of reach, but given the gap between scale of the crisis and government action, we have nothing to lose but our banes. (Point of info: sea-level rise continues for centuries, the main 'lag' according to Ken Caldeira is infrastructure inertia - see 'Committed emissions from existing energy infrastructure jeopardize 1.5 °C climate target')

Tony G 1st August 2019

Along with Extinction Rebellion, School Strike of Climate, and other prominent movements we need to tell the UK Government that they are not fulfilling their Paris pledge and not behaving as responsible leaders of a country that has benefited the most from the fossil fuel-based Industrial Revolution

Matthew Tomlin 31st July 2019

Everybody contribute to this as much as possible. We need to be atriking from school, uni, work and consumption, depending on what we have to be striking from to have most impact on our toxic system.
