At the #climatestrike. Here’s a 🧵 on how climate strikes could go into the workplace even within Australia’s restrictive IR system.
The starting point is to organise based on how workers concretely experience climate breakdown at work - extreme heat, storms, fire, floods and all the threat to safety and disruption to livelihoods that flows from these events.
Climate breakdown is experienced both as a threat to a safe workplace and a threat to wages and conditions. The latter is important but the former provides a basis to organise outside of the restrictions of the Fair Work Act.

Whoever wins today's election your work as a climate champion begins anew tomorrow morning. We must relentlessly hold winners to their words & ALWAYS push for better. It's not enough to just vote & think your advocacy's done, the ship righted. A safe future needs YOU #ClimateWeek

My 123rd week on #ClimateStrike 🌍 Deeply sorrowed by floods in the north and wildfires in the south of Turkey. That's clearly the climate crisis manifesting itself across my country 🌏 #ClimateCrisisIsHere #FaceTheClimateEmergency #MindTheGap #UprootTheSystem #FridaysForFuture +
#İklimGrevi'nde 123. haftam 🌍 Ülkemizin kuzeyinde yaşanan sel felaketlerinde ve güneyinde devam eden orman yangınlarında kaybettiğimiz canlar için iki haftadır içimiz parçalanıyor. +
Sel ve yangınların ortaya çıkış sebepleri ne olursa olsun, sonuçlar iklim krizi yüzünden iyice büyüyüp kötüleşiyor. Bu felaketleri iklim krizinin ülkemizde kendini açıkça gösterişi olarak yorumlamak ve iklim politikamızı buna göre değiştirmek zorundayız. +

From the oval office to the communities where it all happens.

Climate action goes beyond just hoping that things will get better— Hope is inspired by action.

Government must be held accountable, we must hold ourselves accountable. We can't afford to fail, not on this.
The lives of our future and our future's future is on the line, those who suffer the most from the impact of climate change are the vulnerable communities where even at time of stability— government presence is non existent.

We do not have the time to wait till 2030/2050,
Some might say we are simply alarmists, but Greta put it perfectly when she said "it's like waking up in the middle of the night seeing your house on fire and then deciding to wait 10, 20, 30 years before calling the fire department while labeling those trying to wake people up,

This is an extraordinary example of who & what media serves. This media event was viewed by millions. Perhaps billions. See man who steps behind Thunberg, to the right. No one - not 1 journalist or media outlet reported on who this man was - that accompanied Thunberg EVERYWHERE.
ClimateWeekNYC was created for The Climate Group by communications specialist Callum Grieve. #WWF identifies Grieve as a co-founder of #WeMeanBusiness. Grieve was the 3rd person to respond to Rentzhog's Aug 20 2018 first Greta tweet, tagging 9 others.

Nasdaq spreading conspiracy theories.

"NASDAQ IS PROUD TO SUPPORT THE RESET"

Nasdaq: #2 on list of stock exchanges behind NYSE.

#GreatReset: not a figment of our imagination. Rather, it's the 21st cent. imperative of billionaires to save capitalism.

#Imperative21: 72,000 corporations across 80 countries. 150 different industries.

"An unprecedented coalition of business networks that have come together to raise our ambition. Not just to help our individual CEOs succeed... we'll do that for sure..."

Softening push-back w/ marketing/framing/language. #SocialEngineering

"So that the push-back on the BRT [Business Roundtable] from differ. business publications or other people within the [] community lessens. So there's less of a headwind culturally for this type of leadership"

On the Brink: Niagara Falls a Metaphor for Abrupt Climate Change

#ClimateChange #ClimateAction #ClimateEmergency #climate #climatestrike #GlobalWarming #weather #USA #Canada #ottawa
Standing on the brink of Niagara Falls is a perfectly apt metaphor for abrupt climate change. At this point in time, humanity is teetering on the brink of the cliff, and is poised to plunge over the Falls without even a rudimentary barrel...
The power of nature comes into focus when one is next to the brink, and our mind imagines the fear we would feel if we were a few yards away from our location on the observation lookout and in the river instead, being swept along by the swift water...

[How #Beiing treats #ClimateStrike at home]

1. While #China claims to reach carbon neutrality by 2060, it is better for the world to draw attention to how this world’s biggest carbon emitter actually treats green activists at home. vice.com/en_us/article/…
2. Brave teen activist @howey_ou told @VICE, she was once taken to #police station after calling for #ClimateAction outside local gov offices. During interrogation, cops asked her about how she knew about #ClimateChange, why she protests every day and all ppl who had talked to me
3. She described green activism isn’t welcome at home when public criticism is viewed as acts of defiance and harshly punished, "It’s all about authority. They weren’t concerned about science or the planet at all.”

#BreakingNews All operations against deforestation in the Amazon will be halted starting on Monday, the Brazilian government has just said. The announcement was made on the same day as #ClimateStrike. We'll tell you more in this thread 🧵
We write a lot about how the Amazon suffers with deforestation and fire. One year ago, there was ‘Fire Day’, against which no one was charged: reporterbrasil.org.br/2020/08/one-ye…
We also revealed how meatpacking companies like @JBS are buying animals from ranchers who invade indigenous lands in the Amazon. Our story showed that there is still no guarantee that meat from any meatpacker is 100% deforestation-free: reporterbrasil.org.br/2020/06/amazon…

We can’t solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis and we must unite behind experts and science.
This of course goes for all crises.

Now the experts urge us to avoid big public gatherings for a better chance to #flattenthecurve and slow the spreading of the Coronavirus. 1/4
So I personally recommend that we do as the experts say. Especially in high-risk areas.

We young people are the least affected by this virus but it’s essential that we act in solidarity with the most vulnerable and that we act in the best interest of our common society. 2/4
The climate and ecological crisis is the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced but for now (of course depending on where you live) we’ll have to find new ways to create public awareness & advocate for change that don’t involve too big crowds - listen to local authorities. 3/4

A little thread about today #climatestrike in #brussels
Awfully rainy. Fresh. Virus threat.
Still a few thousand people joining . A mix of old militants and young people.
Talked with a few young people and asked them why so few came.
They answered they either don't care or
think the fight is lost ,or not winnable.
Seems we need to go to #Instagram to reach them.
How to talk about methane on IM? i don't know .
Will #Greta manage to lift the energy of 1 billion young people? it's so much to ask from 1 person.
I fear we are losing the battle.
If politicians don't react soon, the bond between generations will disappear.
There's really a deluge of risks and problems facing us and around us.
If americans pick #trump or #biden, then hope will be gone.
What will be left?
I am heartbroken. We need to turn the tide.

Congressman John Lewis once said “Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic.”

What makes you hopeful? Seriously. Share it!

If you’re like me, you could use a few reasons to keep your head up.

Here are 50 reasons to stay hopeful from the past 3+ years.
50. On Jan. 28, 2017, thousands showed up to airports in support of Muslim families impacted by Trump’s unconstitutional #MuslimBan.

That night, a federal judge in NY issued a stay allowing people stranded in airports to temporarily avoid deportation.

Thread incoming, will be pauses while I type
Disclaimer - everything I say here has already said, by better writers (often Indigenous) & by more knowledgable ppl (often Indigenous).

None of this should be taken as my own original thoughts, tho is not the fault or deficiency of the original thinkers if I get anything wrong.
Hello World, we need to talk about Canada.

I'm doing this in the context of my #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike, because the Winnipeg youth Climate Strike group, @mbyouth4climate, has been very involved in #WetsuwetenSolidarity #ShutDownCanada actions.

Reflecting on 2020 & how awesome it is to see #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike #ExtinctionRebellion & more. Having been at this now for 25 years...I started thinking about what I have to share...so here is a New Years offering - top ten tips for successful activism THREAD
1. Focus. If you are about everything you are about nothing. Pick your piece of the puzzle. Set a clear objective for a set period of time. Dog meet bone.
2. Our job is to make a decision maker respond. Figure out who can make the change that needs to happen and focus on ways to engage them.
