On Sep­tem­ber 27th, cities across Cana­da will join Gre­ta Thunberg’s call for a gen­er­al strike for the cli­mate. This event is on track to be one of the largest mass mobi­liza­tions in human his­to­ry. Join us as we demand emer­gency mea­sures of the scale the cli­mate cri­sis demands, in a man­ner that sup­ports a just tran­si­tion for work­ers and is root­ed in the fun­da­men­tal human rights of Indige­nous peoples.

This year in Win­nipeg, we are cel­e­brat­ing the 100 year anniver­sary of the Win­nipeg Gen­er­al Strike for bet­ter work­ing con­di­tions. We need to use our col­lec­tive pow­er once more to demand mas­sive sys­tem change to pro­tect our future.

There will be a march, speak­ers, per­form­ers, mas­sive art instal­la­tions and oppor­tu­ni­ties for group action — all tak­ing place at the Man­i­to­ba Leg­isla­tive Building.

This strike is being spear­head­ed by MB Youth for Cli­mate Action, a group of young peo­ple who began walk­ing out of school in the hun­dreds once a month to demand cli­mate action. We joined the 1.5 mil­lion stu­dents glob­al­ly who marched out of the class­room, to raise our voic­es togeth­er and ask the adults: why won’t you pro­tect us from the cli­mate crisis?

Now we are ask­ing you: will you join us as we fight for our future?
