Support Aussie School Strikers 4 Climate Action

Created March 13, 2019
On Friday March 15, 150,000 Australian students, in 64 locations across the country, joined 1.6 million strikers students in 120 countries to walk out of school and send a clear message to our leaders: young people demand climate action and we demand it now.[1]

March 15, was incredible, but now we need to keep building pressure with more strikes, local organising and actions to get the climate action that we deserve.

We are sacrificing our education temporarily to stand up for our futures. The School Strike 4 Climate Action  is 100%  student-led and growing by the day. We are a decentralised grassroots network so we rely on contributions from the community to super-size our actions and impact.

We are partnering with the AYCC to fundraise for our work[2] - when you donate to us, your contribution will go to:

• Promoting our strikes: Printing posters and flyers, paying for online ads and bulk text messages to spread the word about our events
 Strike logistics: Gear (e.g. stage hire, sound etc) for strikes in the major cities.
• Materials: Buying paints and banners for us to decorate and show proudly at the strike
 Post-strike momentum: Logistics and promotion for post-strike Town Hall events and MP candidates forums actions across the country which will channel the momentum generated by our March 15 strike into sustained local action that puts climate change front and centre of the Federal Election.

All money raised through our crowdfunder will go directly to our work and be split as follows:[3]

• 50%: will be evenly split between local strike group activities (of which there are 60 across Australia) for their local organising and/or national actions
• 50%: will go towards existing planned activities (including #ClimateElection Town Halls and candidates forums) in political hot-spots  

[1] Our specific demands of politicians — treat climate change for what it is - a crisis and:

1. Stop Adani’s dangerous coal mine
2. Say no to ALL new fossil fuel projects
3. Get Australia to 100% renewable energy by no later than 2030

These goals are 100% achievable. All that is lacking in the political will to get the job done. We are going to go all out to change that, because all of our futures are on the line and inaction is not an option.

[2] All donations made to us are tax-deductible thanks to our mates at the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Australia’s largest youth-led organisation.

[3] Please note: 3% of the funds raised from this crowdfunder will need to be deducted by AYCC to cover the administration costs of managing the funds.

Disclaimer: No foreign donations will be accepted.
