youth strikes - Fri 15th March '19


Edited: Mar 13

I would like to know if there are local schools striking in Dorset?

I plan to do 'standing local activism' on 14th, 15th, and could support

the action with placards.

YESTERDAY, on Wed 13th March, I raised awareness about the CONNECTION of ANIMAL LIBERATION and the looming planetary catastrophe, in my renewed work in 'standing local activism' in Gillingham. As planned.

Well done!

I'm a mother of four and grandmother who wants to support you all in your climate change action.

Please like my 'Gift Your Vote' FB our children can't vote for their future I am giving my vote to you all. There's more info on my page.

If this catches on we are sending a message to all the political parties that they need to change their policies NOW and put climate change first... otherwise they won't get re-elected!

Julie, your reply is interesting. I will refer to the link you have provided.

This activism already took place today (15th) on the B3092 throughroad in Gillingham, between about 3pm and 4.15pm. ( to catch the school traffic). I often do this activism at this time, but also at various other times of day, and any day. I also gave out my leaflets today outside Waitrose - 'MAKE EARTH SAFE - A CALL TO ACTION'. I am working on setting a few dates in advance so others may join me.

today, 15th March 2018, I did standing local activism with the youth in mind - 'YOUTH STRIKE Worldwide, for Survival' and, 'I support YOUTH STRIKE for survival' on my placard. There was not a strike locally, but I felt it important to keep the local youth in touch, as well as the general did this at the end of the school day, and in so doing was able to display the placard to all the school buses on the B3092 ( my usual stomping ground!). This, though I say so myself, is excellent activism to save the world as it will definitely have raised a lot of awareness today, as my leaflets will also have done today - 'MAKE EARTH SAFE - A CALL TO ACTION'! (which I gave out at Waitrose). A good day's work I reckon!

  • Hi All, Some of you may have noticed a recent refresh of the website design which hopefully makes things a little clearer and easier to read. We have also recently added a new "Further Reading" page. This contains many links to key reports and articles on Climate Change and Biodiversity loss. This is a great place to start if you want to learn more on these subjects. You can access the new page straight off the menu above - its under the "Find Out More" heading or just click here
  • Simon Hoare, North Dorset's Conservative MP until the dissolution of Parliament, replied to my request for his views on the climate emergency by saying: 'As I don’t know what the questions will be [at the 21 November hustings] I’m obviously not sure what my answers will be.' But he said he was prepared to give the following what he called 'a top line flavour' of his views: 'My main thrust will be: energy efficient building regulations, use of economic instruments to nudge behaviours, positioning 2050 as an end date not a target, and finally supporting initiatives to make our sophisticated lives more sustainable/less impactful.' So that's a full house: all four North Dorset Parliamentary candidates' views on the climate emergency are now on this Forum. Pin 'em down on 21 November!
