What is the Global Climate Strike? Join

More than 70 organizations, including CCOO, urge citizens to join the global call for mobilizations for Climate

In defense of the future, a living planet and a just world, civil society organizations and collectives urge citizens to support and join the Global Climate mobilization on September 27

The signatory organizations call for the immediate declaration of the climate emergency and the concrete measures necessary to rapidly reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to zero. Institutions, States and companies must listen to citizens and organizations that demand a new socio-ecological model that does not compromise the survival of life as we know it. More than 70 organizations have already shown their support for the call for the Global Strike for Climate on September 27

Madrid, July 24, 2019

Recent reports from the UN scientific networks on the state of biodiversity, which indicate that nearly a million species between animals and plants are on the verge of extinction as a result of human activities, and on the increase in the Global average temperature of 1.5 ºC, warn of the deterioration of a large number of ecosystems, both terrestrial and marine, as well as the point of no return in the face of climate change.

Humanity faces one of its greatest challenges: the climate crisis. A crisis, a direct consequence of the current model of extractivist production and globalized consumption, which endangers our own survival and that of a large number of other species and ecosystems and has an unfair impact, especially on the world's most impoverished and vulnerable populations. Failure to respond quickly and forcefully to the climatic and civilizational emergency would mean the death of millions of people, in addition to the irreplaceable extinction of many species essential for life on Earth, given the complex ecosystem interrelationships.

The data is overwhelming and time plays against us. In the case of the Mediterranean region, in which the Iberian Peninsula is located and which is one of the most vulnerable to climate change, if the increase in global average temperature is not limited to 1.5 ºC, the consequences for Present and future generations will be catastrophic: more intense and prolonged heat waves, recurrent droughts, desertification, increased extreme weather events, loss of biodiversity, lack of availability of drinking water and fertile lands, more virulent fires, impoverishment and increase in inequalities
in any of its expressions, etc. Therefore, the different European, state, regional and local institutions must assume their responsibility and be up to the needs of this crucial moment in history. The fight against the climate emergency cannot be subordinated to an ideology or political color, it must be assumed by all parties.

For all this, and in defense of the present and the future, of a living planet and a just world, the signatory individuals and groups join the international call for the Global Strike for Climate, on September 27, and we urge all of society (citizens and all social, environmental and union actors) to mobilize and join the call for the Global Strike for Climate, disseminating and participating in the actions that we are calling, which we will specify and which will be taken very differently forms: demonstrations, student and consumer strikes, lockouts of compromised entities, mobilizations in the workplace and in the streets, etc. A great common and united cry in the climate fight.
