CALL TO ACTION: Students must strike every Friday against climate inaction

Striking every Friday to protest global inaction on climate change will put power in the hands of students who will suffer significant consequences related to climate chaos. Students must radically disrupt the social, economic and political status-quo of the United States. By resisting the system of educational conformity, students can learn lessons of empowerment on local university campuses. The initiative taken by high school students is particularly critical in bringing about radical mass mobilization that has the potential to take over the streets and shut down business as usual. Through organization, occupation, disruption and education, students can start a split at the top of the global power structure. In this way, students in Eugene can join together with students across the world mobilizing against a system of climate chaos. From Standard Oil to Exxon Mobil the world has been held hostage by fossil fuels for over 150 years. Unless students stop this machine, their lives will be fuel for the disaster.

  1. Leave school en masse every Friday.
  2. Creatively disrupt centers of power and commerce.
  3. Empower students to learn and teach in radical group study.
