It’s been 18 months. Since May 2019, there has been a climate striker at parliament for one day in every two. On most days there was a little band of people: sometimes only one, and sometimes thousands.
We stood in sunshine, and wind and rain. We shared food, and we went without it. We sang and talked and argued and hugged and made plans.
We kept going and we won’t stop now, because making a declaration is only the start. It has to be honoured.
Join us in the gallery on Wednesday from 2pm, as we witness the moment. You can make a booking by email
Join Ollie and the other strikers this Wednesday inside Parliament.
You can also join the strike outside parliament on Wednesdays and Fridays.
It’s time to make some new signs. I’ll call Te Papa today about one we won’t be needing now.
We’ll see you there.
