Youth Led Climate Strike to Divest from Destruction and Invest in a Green New Deal

Start: Friday, December 06, 201910:00 AM


With the consequences of climate change becoming ever more clear and dire with each passing day, a new powerful wave of the climate movement has been swelling up over the last couple of years. Young people around the world have been rising up to defend our future, and have been going on strike – every week, all over the planet – for months. In the September Climate Strikes alone, 7.6 million people took to the streets with us.

But our movement isn't going anywhere. Now, we are preparing for the next wave of Climate Strikes.

We call for an occupation at Black Rock’s 3rd largest headquarters at 400 Howard St, demonstrate their current funding of destruction and call for them to start supporting regeneration and resilience.

We will be meeting at 400 Howard St. in San Francisco at 10:00am til 12:00pm. This action is youth led and co hosted by YVA, Black Rock’s Big Problem coalition and others.

At noon, Sunrise Bay Area will be leading a march to an action demanding investment in a Green New Deal at the office of an elected official.

We demand that BlackRock, as the world’s largest investment firm, immediately begin excluding investment in fossil fuels, rainforest destruction and private prisons that hold migrant kids, families and adults.

We demand that our business leaders and elected officials support this divestment from destruction and invest in a Green New Deal in order to create jobs in renewable energy and ecological restoration.

This action is co hosted by YVA, Brazil Solidarity, BlackRocks Big Problem Coalition, Sunrise Bay Area.
