What is the Earth Day Strike?

 

Earth Day Strike 2022 is a day of community-based education and direct action for People, Planet and Peace over profit. The Strike kicks off 10 days of actions – from Earth Day to May Day – to halt the engines of economic, environmental & military destruction. This includes school and work stoppages, rallies, boycotts, pickets, sit-ins, teach-ins, and other peaceful direct action to heal a sick planet and violent world.

 

Actions can be added to the website at www.earthdaystrike2022.org. Events posted can reflect any of the issues across the spectrum of social, economic, environmental, racial, indigenous, labor and gender justice, militarism, colonialism, human rights, civil liberties and democracy.

 

Accelerating climate collapse, crushing inequality, endless war and looming nuclear threats create new urgency for collaboration and unified action. The Strike promotes solidarity across fronts of struggle to harness the transformative power we already possess as a thousand separate movements. Join in and spread the word!
