Australia: Students to protest climate change inaction March 15

Students to protest climate change inaction nationwide March 15; localized disruptions anticipated

11 mars 23h27 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 11/3/2019, 12h00 until 15/3/2019, 11h59 (Australia/NSW). COUNTRY/REGION Australia

Event

Thousands of students are reportedly planning to walk out of schools to protest the government's perceived inaction on climate change on Friday, March 15. Up to 50 rallies across the country are planned. Rallies are planned in the national capital Canberra, as well as in other state capitals and large metropolitan areas. Organizers indicate there are 18 rally points in New South Wales state alone, including Sydney, Bowral, and Byron Bay. Rallies in major cities may be well attended, but are expected to be peaceful. Localized transportation disruptions are likely in the vicinity of any demonstration.

Context

The demonstrations, under the "Youth Strike 4 Climate" banner, are part of an international movement to demand more effective government action on climate change issues. Australian organizers are demanding that the country adopts 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030, no new investment in coal or gas, and the stopping of the Adani coal mine. Government officials have warned students and teachers against joining the anticipated climate change rallies on March 15.

Advice

Individuals are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate crowds, localized disruptions, and a heightened security presence near demonstrations, and avoid all public or political demonstrations as a precaution.
