Fridays for Future global climate strike (25 Sep 2020)

University of Essex branches of UCU, Unison, and Unite come together to support the Fridays For Future global climate strike. We share with University, College and School students the belief that politicians and community leaders are failing the younger generations in tackling the climate and ecological crisis. Our demand is simple: that governments respect the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit global warming by 1.5°C and take urgent action to dramatically reduce carbon emissions.  

The climate and ecological crisis is a trade union issue; there will be no jobs on a dead planet! We support a Green New Deal that will tackle environmental breakdown and  make our societies fairer.
