In September 2019, 40,000 people gathered here to march on parliament. Around the country, 170,000 people joined them with the same message.
Come join School Strike For Climate as we do it again.
Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity and responsibility to create a new normal – one which creates a planet we would all feel proud to pass on to future generations, by holding people and the planet at its center. We must show our leaders that there is still momentum and that thousands of New Zealanders are here, ready to walk alongside our political leaders on this journey to the more beautiful Aotearoa that we know is possible.School Strike For Climate NZ
We’ll be there, and we have a few signs to spare. From Civic Square the march will head to parliament. Come and join us.
Ecocide: The Earth needs a Lawyer.
Scottish environmentalist Polly Higgins chose to become a lawyer in her mission to resist the practices that are ending life around us. Her campaign is to see that Ecocide is recognised as a crime against humanity. Polly died in 2019 but the work she started, Stop Ecocide, is going strong.
The rules of our world are laws, and they can be changed. Laws can restrict or they can enable. What matters is what they serve. Many of the laws in our world serve property – they are based on ownership. But imagine a law that has a higher moral authority… a law that puts people and planet first. Imagine a law that starts from first do no harm, that stops this dangerous game and takes us to a place of safety…Polly Higgins, 2015
We’ve been contacted by the Stop Ecocide movement for help, so we’ll be adding their message and information to the things we bring to parliament. If you want to get more actively involved please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
