Throughout the week of April 20-24, Amnesty International invites you to participate in an online climate strike as part of a global virtual action for climate justice!
Amnesty is calling for governments to:
- Do everything they can to help stop the global temperature rising by more than 1.5°C.
- Reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050 at the latest. Richer countries should do this faster. By 2030, global emissions must be half as much as they were in 2010.
- Stop using fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) as quickly as possible.
- Make sure that climate action is done in a way that does not violate anyone’s human rights, and reduces rather than increases inequality
- Make sure everyone, in particularly those affected by climate change or the transition to a fossil-free economy, is properly informed about what is happening and is able to participate in decisions about their futures.
- Work together to fairly share the burden of climate change – richer countries must help others.
Although we can’t take to the streets in a massive climate action, we will continue to demonstrate public momentum on this issue.
To join the strike here is what to do:
- Make a climate strike sign
- Take a picture of yourself holding the sign and post to social media using the hashtags #ClimateStrikeOnline and #DigitalStrike.
- Upload your photo here where AIUSA will create an online photo gallery of our collective actions!
Join the TWITTER STORM on Friday, April 24 from 12:00pm-4:00pm est/ 9:00am -1:00pm pct (a twitter storm is a sudden flurry or activity on twitter and helps to get a message across -be sure to tag your subject!)
To participate in the Twitter Storm here is what to do:
- Post your climate strike photo and tag @RealDonaldTrump so he sees that you demand climate action. Please also tag Amnesty USA at @amnestyusa so that we can see your posts
