Young people have woken up much of the world with their powerful Fridays for Future school strikes for the climate. As we deal with devastating climate breakdown and hurtle towards dangerous tipping points, young people are calling on millions of us across the planet to disrupt business as usual by joining the global climate strikes on September 20, just ahead of a UN emergency Climate Summit in New York.

Women, girls, and allies are invited to join a diverse coalition of women’s groups, climate justice organizations, and others – to organize and strike together, in solidarity, as part of the Global Climate Strike.

We heed the call and stand with young people worldwide whose very future is on the line. We will raise our voices with them to demonstrate women’s power to build just climate solutions – and take a stand for all future generations to live in a healthy, just, and thriving world.

575 Market St.

SF

Join us at AmazonGo, a stop on the Youth and Allies Climate Strike March as part of the global climate strike on September 20th. Come together with families and union members as we call on Amazon to stop profiting off expanded fossil fuel extraction, to stop supporting ICE and DHS raids on immigrant communities, and to treat their workers with respect.

10:30am- Art Making
11:15am- Main Program

Continue on with us as we join Youth vs. Apocalypse and other allies in marching to other bad climate actors

AMAZON, PUT OUR CLIMATE OVER YOUR PROFITS
Amazon is a bad climate actor, seeking to profit off increased fossil fuel extraction even as our climate and ecosystems collapse. Amazon Web Services for Oil & Gas initiative is devoted to helping fossil fuel companies accelerate and expand oil and gas extraction. Amazon donates to climate-deniers including 68 members of congress in 2018 who voted against climate legislation 100% of the time…

Since April 2019, more than 8000 Amazon workers have demanded that their company develop a company-wide climate plan – to date, their appeal has been ignored.

AMAZON, CUT TIES TO ICE
Amazon provides essential technological infrastructure to DHS and ICE, enabling the Trump administration’s raids on immigrant communities and detentions in dangerous camps on the border. Amazon Web Services is Amazon’s cloud technology that mass hosts and stores information. The Department of Homeland Security, and ICE, use AWS cloud technology to store, sort, and share massive amounts of data to target immigrants, including through information provided states by residents for their drivers licenses.

We will meet in Union Square where there will be a welcome area and multiple training stations. Groups and individuals will have the option of being trained before heading out to swarm, so if you don’t have a group lined up already, come anyway!

September 23rd in Union Square: we will train groups then send them out.

September 25, Wednesday

Strike for the Climate

8. Wednesday, 7:00am – 5:00pm, Strike for Climate Justice!

Montgomery & Market Sts.

SF

We understand that the beautiful system of life that has supported humanity for hundreds of thousands of years is being destroyed by capitalism, greed, and misguided leadership. Most of our elected officials have been co-opted by corporate directors and do not act according to the will of the people. They have utilized vast sums of money to discredit concerned groups of citizens and confuse the public.

There are millions of children, Indigenous people, people of color, rural and urban frontline communities, and citizens rising up around the world to ensure a safe, healthy, and sustainable future for ourselves and generations to come. We invite everyone to join us during the Climate Strike in September.

In addition to actions during the rest of the week, on September 25th, we name those responsible for destroying life as we know it.

Other options on this day include creating 20 street murals, each one representing a part of the whole vision we have for an immediate transition to the resilient, sustainable, and safe world necessary for survival. Join us to dream, paint, and share how we move forward at this time.

On this day we will put on large display of the depth of our love and commitment to Mother Earth and all the generations to come!

In front

300 Market St.

SF

Please join Brasil Solidarity Network and hundreds of other people in the Bay Area as we shut down streets in San Francisco on September 25th where decision making about the harms to Mother Earth are being made.

We are declaring that WE LOVE THE AMAZON!

Look for the big trees and you’ll know you’re in the Amazon! In front of 300 Montgomery Street  there will be a mini Amazon. We will be painting a mural and an Amazon River to create our vision of the future for the Amazon.

We will be listening to the sounds of the Amazon. We will also be building an altar – you are welcome to bring something for it for example flowers, music etc.

We would like to invite you to come dressed or painted or whatever as your favorite Amazon animal or tree. Be creative!!

September 27, Friday

10.  Friday, 9:00am – 12:00Noon, Climate Strike at Chevron

6001 Bollinger Canyon Road

San Ramon

Meet at the entrance of Chevron’s global headquarters for a vibrant, powerful action, demanding that Chevron’s CEO speak to the youth whose future is jeopardized because of Chevron’ drive for profit at the expense of our air, water and climate.

Join youth and allies on September 27th to protest Chevron, one of the world’s biggest polluters headquartered here in the Bay Area. Chevron knowingly pollutes the Richmond area, the Central Valley, the earth, and many other communities. Chevron is one of the top climate polluters in history – one of four fossil fuel companies that are the highest emitters of carbon since 1988 and one of the top 100 companies that are responsible for 71% of all global emissions. We will be demanding that Chevron gets off of fossil fuels by 2025 and that they stop using their influence to harm frontline communities and our future. We also demand that Governor Newsom hold Chevron accountable.
