March on Wheels
September 25, 2020 @ 16:30 - 18:00
We cannot deal with the Covid pandemic by making the climate crisis and social inequalities worse. Our demands for change at a local level, here in Maastricht, are on the table and we need them to be heard. Now not later, because our time is running out.
That’s why we are uniting on the streets of Maastricht again to push for our 8 demands for the municipality. (https://www.maastrichtforclimate.nl/en/our-demands/)
Come join us!
When 25th of September, 16:30
Where Stadspark -> Plein 1992 (more info on the route in the event)
What A March on WheelsA vehicle! ( Mask, Helmet, Protectors)
We want the Gemeente Maastricht to know that we are still here and that we are still many. It’s time for us to be seen in our streets again but in a way that allows us to protect ourselves and others. That’s why we are bringing the Global Climate Action day to Maastricht in form of a “March on Wheels”. That’s right! On wheels! Bring your bike, board, skates, tricycles, hoverboard, handcart or whatever vehicle you find in your shed. Get creative on the decoration part: Attach flags and signs! It is important that we maintain the required 1.5 m distance to our fellow protesters – do your part in this! We encourage everyone to bring a mask, helmet and protection so to make sure we finish our little tour without any injuries or infections!
This year has been marked by crises that have affected the live and livelihood of people all over the world and here in Maastricht. Living in a system that is so prone to crisis it is on us to scream and shout for sustainable change: Towards a more resilient, social and just society! Because even in an ongoing pandemic the climate crisis is not on hold. California is burning again, millions of people are fleeing form droughts and hunger, refugees at our borders are suffering under devastating conditions. Now is also the year where we can still ensure we reach the 1.5 degrees target. We can prevent many more of such humanitarian crisis, millions more of people losing their lives and livelihood. Governments have shown their ability to take quick and decisive action. This is why protesters all over the world are taking on the streets again: To demand Climate Action Now! Join the global movement, with us here in Maastricht.
