CLIMATE STRIKE FORUM @ NSW Teacher's Union Auditorium
Aug 31 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This will be a preparation for the 20/9 Climate Strike. 1.5 million schoolkids went on strike last time. We are hoping for many more this time, and adults to come out as well… The demands of the worldwide Climate Strike on 20/9 are…

  1. No new coal, oil or gas projects, including Adani.
  2. 100% renewables by 2030.
  3. Just transition for all fossil fuel industry workers.

There will be student speakers, and a speaker from the CFMMEU who knows about the anti-Uranium mining struggle. All welcome. Childcare will be available.
