General Strike and GND Planning
July 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Help us plan a general strike! The Green New Deal Manitoba Working Group (made up of Manitobans just like you!) is planning to organize local action on September 27th, as a part of the Global Climate Strike (https://globalclimatestrike.net/) and in response to MByouth4climate’s call for everyone to join them (their next strike is September 20th).
Come out on July 2nd at 599 Portage Ave Atrium from 7:00 to 9:00 and bring your ideas!
Youth climate strikes have made it abundantly clear that there is a demand for action on the climate emergency from all levels of government, but we have yet to see a meaningful response from our governments in Manitoba.
Withdrawing labour is one of the most powerful actions that working (and even professional) class people can take to show powerful institutions that our concerns and demands need to be taken seriously. Join us on the 2nd and on the 9th to learn more and help us plan!
