School Strike 4 Climate NZ are holding a third strike to demand our Government and elected members take urgent and meaningful action for the climate and our collective future. New Zealand students will be uniting with students from across the world once again but this time, in a general strike with the general population. This general strike is on Friday, 27th September.
We will not back down: we will continue to make our voices heard until all of our demands are met. Our representatives need to show us meaningful and immediate action that safeguards our futures on this planet. Nothing else will matter if we cannot look after the Earth for current and future generations. This is our home.
To recognise the significant threat climate change poses to all our futures, livelihoods and very existence we are calling on all New Zealanders to join us and stand in solidarity on 27th September for urgent action on the climate crisis. Student strikers are encouraged to bring their parents along to the strike and the general population are invited to get involved.
MR WERP stands for Motupipi River Willow Eradication and Restoration Project. We are a community initiative aiming to remove willows along a section of the Motupipi river. Our plan is to then replant a 5 m riparian strip. The hope is the planting will reduce the flow of sediment into the stream bed, improving water quality and the micro-nutrients available to fish life!
Come along to our next Planting Day, meeting on Glenview Rd on Sunday Sept 15 2019 @ 10 am.
