Why We Are Striking

Our house is on fire. Sound the alarm!

From September 20th to 27th 2019, millions of people around the world walked out of their homes and workplaces to join youth-led #ClimateStrike actions demanding that leaders respond to the climate emergency. 

Here in London, Ontario, our City Council admirably voted in April to declare a Climate Emergency. Now it’s up to us, the people who elected them, to show our councillors how important action on the environment is to us. And to show them how important it is that the City takes real action now – so that declaring a “climate emergency” is not just words, but actually shifts policy, priorities, and resources.

Fighting climate breakdown is about much more than emissions and scientific metrics – it’s about fighting for a just and sustainable world that works for all of us. If we are going to fight for this, we need everyone!
