Welcome to Earth Strike – General Strike to Save the Planet. We are a grassroots movement demanding immediate action against climate change from governments and corporations worldwide.
The most important issue of our time
The worldwide climatological community has shown beyond a doubt that Earth’s climate is changing, and human industry is strongly responsible. According to numerous studies and analyses, published by prestigious scientific organizations, these trends are slated to continue, and lead us – every human and animal on the planet – to a perpetually worsening state of climate catastrophe… unless we take immediate action.
The Earth Strike movement has formed a plan of action spanning 2019 with four primary international events. We encourage local organizers to take any opportunities available to get protesters out on the streets and bring attention to the movement.
- January 15, 2019 – Earth Strike Kickoff Protest! The first world-wide event will help our national and local organizers engage their communities and kickstart our ground support.
- April 27, 2019 – Halfway Earth Day Protest! Held on the weekend after Earth Day, to symbolize the halfway mark to the Earth Strike. Organizers and protesters will use the build-up to May Day to form closer ties with local unions, who will be integral to building widespread support for the strike.
- August 1, 2019 – Final Pre-Strike Protest! Held on the Earth Overshoot Day of 2018. A final protest just before the strike, to serve as a final wake-up call for those that have not yet joined in.
- September 27, 2019 – Earth Strike! On the 57th anniversary of Silent Spring, the book that kick-started the environmentalist movement, we will hold the General Strike to Save the Planet, or the Silent Spring Strike!
