St. Greta’s Climate Group Calls For Global Climate Strike

Yes, yes, this is just what we need, a bunch of low skill workers striking. As Erik Worrall writes “If you don’t pay Climate Reparations, All the Useless People Will Walk Out Until Their Demands are Met”. From the Fridays For Future press release

ON SEPTEMBER 24, WE WILL STRIKE TO DEMAND FOR INTERSECTIONAL CLIMATE JUSTICE! JOIN US!

#UPROOTTHESYSTEM

The climate crisis does not exist in a vacuum. Other socio-economic crises such as racism, sexism, ableism, class inequality, and more amplify the climate crisis and vice versa. It is not just a single issue, our different struggles and liberations are connected and tied to each other. We are united in our fight for climate justice, but we must also acknowledge that we do not experience the same problems; nor do we experience them to the same extent. (snip)

The time to join the masses and follow the lead of the environmental defenders and workers has been long overdue. Reparations to MAPA must be paid for the historic injustices of the richest elite, drastic emission cuts in the Global North, vaccine equity, cancellation of debt, and climate finance are only the beginning of these. Together we will fight for a just future where no one is left behind. The historical victories of collective action have proven the need for the youth to stand united with the multisectoral, intergenerational struggle for a better future for all; a future where people and planet are prioritized.

Anyone else getting the idea that this is not about science? This is just reaffirmation of what I noticed back in 2004, and have been saying ever since, that all the policies dovetail perfectly with far left politics. But, hey, what are we going to do without burger flippers and coffee slingers on 9/24? Worrall dives into the referenced Google Drive document

We’re in the midst of a climate crisis, mass species extinction, a world health pandemic, socio-economic inequality crises, and more. The current system actively strives towards highlighting the voices of the most privileged through a racist and white-savior narrative that portrays people from the Global South as underdeveloped, poor, and voiceless. Industrialized countries of the Global North have been doing this for centuries through colonialism, imperialism, the perpetuation of systemic injustices and their fixation on everlasting growth. However, people from the Global South or the most affected areas are not underdeveloped, poor, or voiceless, but battling with the consequences of colonization and neocolonization while actively being silenced. They are strong, fearless and conscious as they have been fighting and addressing the root cause of these crises for centuries, that is the systems of oppression and injustice created by the richest of the Global North.

We must unite, follow the lead of defenders and workers, amplify MAPA voices, and demand more ambitious action from Global North representatives. Together we will fight for a just future where no one is left behind, because our liberations are tied together. The historical victories of collective action have proven the need for the youth to stand united with the multisectoral, intergenerational struggle for a better future for all; a future where people and the planet are prioritized over profit.

No, no, totally about science, not the Modern Socialist agenda.

    It’s Eric, not Erik, Worrall. Worrall is a WUWTist opinion writer and climate disinformer.

    Of course, global warming is more than a scientific issue, duh.

    Guess it’s too much to hope that the strikers will all just hold their breath? Just until their demands are met, of course.
