This September, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.

Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone.

Worldwide Supporting Organizations

Register your climate strike and support demonstration here!

This is an action of #FridaysForFuture and #ClimateStrike


“Strikers are calling on people from all around the world to join a week of escalated climate action. This begins on the 20th of September with a youth-led climate strike, which will culminate in the first ever global general strike on the 27th. We’re calling on everyone to join this movement and stand with the youth who have been sacrificing their education to unleash an unprecedented demonstration of unified resistance around the world.

“This is just the beginning: Plans are already in place for further action to continue pressuring governments and corporations. The next wave of internationally coordinated actions begins in October with the first materialisation of what will continue into 2020 as a convergence of many organizations united as a “movement of movements”, marking a turning point in human history.”

Extinction Rebellion Take Action Apr 15-22

Extinction Rebellion US April 15-22 


What is the Extinction Rebellion?
The Earth, including its mantle of atmosphere,
is suffering.
With entire ecosystems dissembling before changing climates,
life on Earth as we know it is at stake.
From Monday 15 April, Extinction Rebellion is taking action on the streets of cities all over the world – from Auckland to Accra, Mexico City to Vancouver – over multiple days to demand that governments take necessary action on the global Climate and Ecological Emergency.
Extinction Rebellion will peacefully block traffic around the clock. This will be a full-scale festival of creative resistance, with people’s assemblies, art actions, stage performances, talks, workshops, food and family spaces.

Extinction Rebellion UK News

Why in the US?  Because our institutions have proven themselves incapable of addressing the climate crisis.  Therefore, we must do more in addition to lobbying and protesting congress, more in addition to using nonviolent direct action to stop fossil fuel infrastructure . . .
Rebellion is collectively our last best chance.

California Youth Climate Strike: San Diego

Hosted by California Climate Strike and US Youth Climate Strike

Friday, March 15, 2019 at 10 AM – 2 PM
Chula Vista City Hall
Chula Vista, California

Join San Diego youth as we strike for the Green New Deal and other necessary actions to solve the climate crisis. If you are unable to join us, consider organizing a strike, walkout, or other action on your campus! Learn more about our movement at

We, the youth of America, are striking because decades of inaction has left us with just 11 years (or less) to solve the climate crisis. We are striking because the necessary action to achieve the common-sense and vital goal of fighting climate change is not being prioritized. We are striking because marginalized communities across our nation —especially indigenous, black, and low income communities— are already disproportionately impacted by climate change, yet, few people in positions of power have acknowledged this reality, and even fewer have begun to confront it appropriately.

We are at a turning point in history. Our futures are at stake. We call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people. We are striking for the Green New Deal, a fair and just transition to decarbonize the US economy, and other legislative action that combats the effects of climate change. We stand in solidarity with Greta Thunberg and all youth strikers worldwide as we demand action on this issue.

We are running out of time, and we won’t be silent any longer. We, the youth of America, are striking because our present and future on this planet are at stake.

And we are determined to do something about it.

In 2016 he released a solo CD “For the Road and the Sky,” and “Until You Come Home: Songs to Heal the Wounds of War,” a compilation CD of songs about the effects of war on those who serve.

A Proposed Amendment to the San Diego City Charter:

A Commission on Police Practices

Proposed by Women Occupy San Diego


The community doesn’t trust police oversight where the police investigate themselves.


We need a strong Commission that:

  • Is Independent, to replace the current Review Board appointed by the Mayor.
  • Provides Independent Investigators for ALL complaints, instead of relying on SDPD Internal Affairs investigation.
  • Has Independent Legal Counsel instead of City Attorney.
  • Has Subpoena Power for civilian witnesses instead of none.
  • Receives and reviews all complaints and decides disposition.


Supporters to date are: American Civil Liberties Union, Black Men United, Community Assistance Support Team (CAST), Criminal Defense Lawyers Club, Earl B. Gilliam Bar Association, Indivisible Blue district, Mid-City Community Advocacy Network (Mid-City CAN), Mosques Against Trafficking, National Action Network (NAN), National Lawyers Guild, San Diego Chapter, Older Women’s League – San Diego (OWL), Peace Resource Center, Pillars of the Community, Pink Crescent, Racial Justice Coalition, San Diego County Young Democrats, San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, San Diego Labor Democratic Club, San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP), Showing up for Racial Justice (SURJ), Tom Homann Law Association (THLA), Veterans Democratic Club, Veterans for Peace-San Diego Chapter.

When: Saturday, June 30 at 11 a.m.

Where: Waterfront Park, San Diego, CA

UPDATE: June 27, 2018, 10:00 AM ET
A federal judge ruled against Trump’s family separation policy—but we know the administration will fight back. We have momentum and we cannot slow down now since the the court ruling alone isn’t enough and could be overturned. Our mobilization, in over 600 locations around the country and still growing, is critical to showing the widespread public demand for just immigration policies—because families belong together … and free!

Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families.

But we won’t allow it to continue. On June 30, we’re rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!

Trump and his administration have been systematically criminalizing immigration and immigrants, from revoking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to ramping up intimidating ICE tactics. 

Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!

More About Che Café

The Che Café is a worker co-operative, social center and live music venue located on the University of California San Diego campus. Founded in 1980 by several UC San Diego students, the name “Che” in “Che Café” is not only a nod to the late Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara, but is also a backronym for ” Cheap Healthy Eats”.

During the 1980s, Che Café Collective members began to host reggae and punk rock shows, and in the 1990s, the space became an internationally recognized staple of the hardcore/ rock scene.

Today, the Che operates primarily as a venue for a variety of musical genres, many based around the DIY ethic, and is an on-and-off again vegan cafe and catering operation. It also acts as a resource for the music and art departments on campus through hosting art shows, performances and film screenings.
