Support and Demand the Evacuations of those in danger from Afghanistan
The Fridays for Future ARZ Taskforce is a working group within Fridays for Future made up of FFF activists and professionals from all over the world. ARZ FFF was created in 2019 to rescue twenty Climate activists who were arrested in May 2019 in Tabriz (Iran), for protesting against the state politics. We continue to support and advocate on behalf of activists all over the world whose well-being or legal rights are being threatened. For the past two months, we have been working in collaboration with Climate 2025 to evacuate high at risk activists, their families and children from Afghanistan.
…or FFF, is a youth-led and -organised global climate strike movement that started in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg began a school strike for climate. In the three weeks leading up to the Swedish election, she sat outside Swedish Parliament every school day, demanding urgent action on the climate crisis. She was tired of society’s unwillingness to see the climate crisis for what it is: a crisis.
To begin with, she was alone, but she was soon joined by others. On the 8th of September, Greta and her fellow school strikers decided to continue their strike until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2° C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement. They created the hashtag #FridaysForFuture and encouraged other young people all over the world to join them. This marked the beginning of the global school strike for climate.
Their call for action sparked an international awakening, with students and activists uniting around the globe to protest outside their local parliaments and city halls. Along with other groups across the world, Fridays for Future is part of a hopeful new wave of change, inspiring millions of people to take action on the climate crisis.
