Join the Fight
On September 20th, we saw unprecedented numbers taking to the streets all over the world to demand climate justice from our governments. With over 40,000 people in Scotland, and 7 million in the rest of the world, these numbers show that the tide has turned on climate justice.
The Scottish Government passed it’s new Climate Change Emissions Reduction Targets Bill shortly after, however we were extremely disappointed to see the targets it outlines are far from radical enough. We must be carbon neutral by 2030, and we must provide a just transition and an end to colonialism.
We need your help to make the point clear. Strike with us and tell the Scottish Government that they aren’t doing enough.
