Global student-led strike for climate action
September 24, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
KJIPUKTUK (HALIFAX), NOVA SCOTIA – On Friday, September 24th youth from across Kjipuktuk will be demonstrating for climate justice, coinciding with global strikes around the world. Internationally, youth are rallying around the call to #UprootTheSystem, recognizing that the current climate crisis is caused by the different systems of oppression (political, social, economic) that intersect and amplify the effects of climate change. Following a federal election, Climate Strike Halifax will be demanding that whichever parties form government follow through on their campaign climate promises, and truly represent the people’s demands to act boldly and urgently on the climate crisis.
Youths will rally at Victoria Park at 12:00 pm, before marching to Nova Scotia Power, the Nova Scotia legislature, and finishing at TBA to rally and have speeches.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the recent uptick in cases, masks will be required.
