The European campaign By 2020 We Rise Up has started on December 08. It aims organising a massive collective uprising for climate justice and system change in 2020. Animal Climate Action supports the campaign!
On December 8, activists groups all over the world will be ringing a climate alarm. We have chosen this date to mark the beginning of an uprising for climate justice [http://by2020weriseup.net/call-out/].
With extreme weather events wrecking havoc across the globe, and while politicians and corporations perpetuate business as normal at COP24 in Katowice, we have no time to wait. It is up to us to solve the climate crisis.
The plan: Throughout 2019 we will mobilize increasing numbers of people to put their bodies in front of the machinery causing the destruction. We will take action targeting the infrastructure and companies; the political and financial institutions at the root cause of the crisis. Collectively we will bring about the radical changes that our society needs in order to avoid catastrophic climate breakdown.
At the the Climate Justice Action (CJA) network meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic (17-19 Nov), groups from all over Europe decided to connect their struggles – against gas pipelines, coal mines, industrial agriculture, airport expansions and social injustices.
From December 8 onwards, we will rise up together, building momentum throughout 2019, to organise a massive collective uprising for climate justice and system change in 2020.
