Climate Strike – Friday, Sept. 24

MUNFA stands in full solidarity with the Newfoundland and Labrador students who have joined millions of young people worldwide to declare a general strike for climate action on Friday, September 24th. The Fridays for Future St. John’s demonstration will start at Memorial’s clock tower at 11:30 a.m. on September 24th.

In light of the indisputable evidence of rapid and devastating climate change, the negative effects of which are being felt in this province and around the world, we must answer the call for support from our students and other young people who have been fighting for climate justice.

MUNFA is strongly committed to working in coalition with students and other members of the Memorial University community to ensure that our university plays its full part in combatting the climate emergency that faces us all.

We encourage MUNFA members to show solidarity with the strike in accordance with their conscience. Visit the Fridays for Future website for more details on how you can take action and show your support!
