Well, well, well.
What do we have here?
You will remember School Strike 4 Climate NZ was the organisation who in 2021 embarked upon the weirdest woke self mutilation we’ve ever witnessed by canceling themselves because ‘cracker made climate change, indigenous people are facing the worst of that climate change, cracker be racist, we are cancelling ourselves’.
Don’t believe me? Read their press release from 2021…
School Strike 4 Climate Auckland is disbanding as an organisation.
This is under the suggestion and guidance of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) members of our group, as well as individual BIPOC activists and organisations. We are not holding any more climate strikes in the Auckland region. Our members have also separated from the national SS4C team. Going forward, we will only be using our social media to uplift BIPOC-led climate justice spaces in Auckland.
BIPOC communities are disproportionately affected by climate change, so the fight for climate justice should be led by their voices and needs, not Pākehā ones.
We are disbanding because, since 2019, SS4C AKL (as well as the wider national group, though we can’t speak on their behalf) has been a racist, white-dominated space. SS4C AKL has avoided, ignored, and tokenised BIPOC voices and demands, especially those of Pasifika and Māori individuals in the climate activism space. As well as this, the responsibility and urgent need to decolonise the organisation has been put off for far too long. SS4C also delayed paying financial reparations for the work BIPOC groups/individuals within and alongside the group have done for this organisation in the past.
This is a non-exhaustive list.
We apologise for the hurt, burnout, and trauma caused to many BIPOC individuals, including current and past members, as well as BIPOC-led groups. We also apologise for the further trauma caused by our slow action to take responsibility. We recognise that this apology can never be enough to make up for our actions on top of years of systemic and systematic oppression, racism, and the silencing of those who are the most affected by climate change. This apology is just one of our steps in taking accountability for our actions.
Our disbandment is well overdue.
We acknowledge that our attitude has been racist and dismissive of the voices that have rightly spoken out against us and we apologise deeply for the pain we have caused. In saying this, we also need to acknowledge that racism is a big problem within the SS4C NZ team as well, but that we have made this decision independently from them.
We recommend you all redirect your support, resources and involvement to BIPOC activists, spaces and causes, especially those that are led by Pasifika and Māori people.
This includes groups such as 4TK ( 4TK), Pacific Climate Warriors ( Pacific Climate Warriors – Auckland ), Para Kore Ki Tāmaki ( PARA KORE KI TĀMAKI), Protect Mataharehare ( Protect Mataharehare ), Protect Pūtiki ( Protect Pūtiki), Save Canal Road Native Trees ( Save Canal Road Native Trees ), Te Ara Whātu ( Te Ara Whatu).
If you are a BIPOC-led climate/social justice organisation or a BIPOC climate/social justice activist, please let us know if/how we can help by messaging our Instagram, Facebook, or emailing email@example.com. We will uplift your kaupapa and Mahi through this platform, or any other means available to us.
The climate justice space must be led by BIPOC groups and others who are disproportionately affected by climate change. In Aotearoa, this especially means Māori and Pasifika groups.
We fully discourage any future and current Pākehā-led groups from occupying the space we leave behind.
School Strike 4 Climate Auckland
…I love that at the end they threaten any group from stepping into this space. They enjoy all the nuance of a Maoist purge.
The Holy Trinity of middle class Woke Dogma is the following:
In the name of the nonBinary Mother, the nonBinary Sister and the monthly Ghost;
Every white person is an irredeemable cross burning racist;
B-EL-I-E-V-E every woman that every man is a rapist;
and Anyone defending Free Speech is a uniform wearing Nazi who hates the Trans Community.
Remember, there ain’t no wriggle room in that Holy Trinity of Woke Dogma and that was the agenda that School Strike 4 Climate Auckland was channeling.
Destroying a climate crisis protest movement because of woke self mutilation is ideology at its most destructive. This weird kamikaze cancellation saw the climate crisis movement plunge from 170 000 protestors on the street in 2019 to a mere 3000 in March of this year.
Like The Pride Parade (that has gone from an event that once attracted 30 000 to 3000), the climate protest movement was taken over by radical woke activists who alienated everyone involved and killed it off.
In 2018, woke Trans activists seized control of the Pride Parade Board at a stacked meeting and promptly burnt every bridge the rainbow community had spent decades building. They decided to force the Police to dump their uniforms if the Police wanted to march in the Parade because police uniforms trigger the Trans community.
I know. I know. I know.
The Police had fought to win the right to wear their uniforms against the Police Hierarchy and so saw demands by the new woke Pride Board to dump their uniforms as blasphemy and promptly pulled out alongside everyone else who had spent decades building bridges with the rainbow community.
The woke proclaimed this a victory because now only the true believers were left.
30 000 to 3000 is victory according to the woke.
Likewise the climate change protest movement. It peaked in 2019 with 170 000, but collapsed after the exact same woke activism attacked the existing leadership structures.
So imagine our collective surprise when the very group who cancelled themselves for being too racist is now begging Pakeha to support them, I kid you not…
“For decades communities, students, and activist groups have been calling on urgent and real action from central and regional governments to reduce climate change. As a country we have barely budged, with emissions still rising and climate change impacts now hitting communities regularly,” says Emily Tuhi-Ao Bailey (Ngati Mutunga, Te Atiawa, Taranaki iwi and co-founder of Climate Justice Taranaki).
Bailey urges everyone to get on the streets with the kids for the Aotearoa Climate Strike this Friday, and remind politicians and the privileged rich that they aren’t doing nearly enough.
…these woke fucks alienate and destroy these populist movements with their identity politics bullshit and when the movements collapse they then beg for public support?
