XR Brighton joins the Global Climate Strike

20th Sep 2019 11:00 - 14:00

Hove Lawns, Kingsway, BN3

In May this year, Greta Thunberg and 46 youth climate activists put out the following call:

"Young people have led the climate strikes. Now we need adults to join us too. We can’t stave off global heating by ourselves. Together, on 20 September, we can unleash mass resistance."

This is our chance to stand in solidarity with the young generation. Youth strikers have inspired the world, and people from all walks of life are responding. Our house is on fire — let’s act like it! No more “business as usual”. We demand climate justice for everyone.

In Britain the 20th September Climate Strike has backing from the UK Student Climate Network (UKSCN), the Campaign against Climate Change (CaCC), Extinction Rebellion and a number of trade unions.

We'll start at Hove Lawns at 11am, where Caroline Lucas will be speaking. We'll then march to The Level for more speakers from 1pm. See the list of speakers here:
