Climate Justice in Western Civilisation? by Paradigm Shift published on 2019-03-25T01:29:14Z We are stardust…billion year old carbon, caught in the devil’s bargain…. and we got to get ourselves back to the garden” – Joni Mitchell This program offers its heart to all the victims, their family & friends in Christchurch last Friday. The student strike for climate justice on 15 March 2019 demonstrated that there needs to be more contemporary issues discussed as part of public education. Political leaders like Annastacia Palasczchuk and Scott Morrison came out against the student strike. State schools forbade their students to march as a group. For example Brisbane State high school students were told not to march for climate justice and not to go to the demonstration as a state high contingent. Fortunately this did not stop the students. Andy and Ian interview students from Schools strike for climate justice and forum protesting the introduction of Ramsey history of the western civilisation at the University of Queensland.
