We hope to see as many of you as possible outside the Parkinson steps by 12 noon so we can set off together at midday, with banners, flags, placards and alarm clocks, to join the Leeds Youth Strike for Climate event by 12.15 in Millenium Square. More details.
The University agreed to our request for all staff to have a 30 minute paid stoppage for this on top of our lunch breaks, so we can all march down together and show the young people how much support they have from the university.
We were pleased to see the recent University climate announcement especially about fossil fuel divestment, which students and staff have been campaigning about for years (e.g. here). We look forward to trade union involvement in turning the new climate principles into action.
