PLYMOUTH – More than 120 citizens of the Plymouth region have organized a “strike force” to launch the local effort to address the Climate Emergency and will hold a climate strike on the Plymouth Town Common on Friday, Sept. 20 from noon to 3 p.m.
The newly formed Pemi Climate Emergency Coalition is determined not to waste a moment.
“Nothing ever happens in politics without a popular uprising,“ said Steve Rand, Co-Chair of the Coalition. “We have come together to create that uprising locally. Nothing else matters if we don’t get this right and there is very little time.”
The sense of urgency among these 120 citizens is palpable and they are pushing for citizens to turn out to join the Strike.
The Strike is part of a global day of action organized by 350.org. Similar groups will be joining together across the planet demanding action and accountability from political and industry leaders.
