Lismore residents joined thousands around the globe on Sunday calling for action on climate change.
About 500 people marched around the central business district before gathering in Spinks Park to hear from a range of speakers.
Organiser Martin Oliver said the rally wanted to send a strong message to federal politicians and world leaders that an agreement needed to be reached on climate change action.
The rally took place ahead of the global Summit on Climate Change at the United Nation headquarters in New York today.
Mr Oliver said the federal government’s repeal of the carbon tax and moves to dismantle or reduce the Renewable Energy Target were misguided.
He said it was also a concern prime minister Tony Abbott would not be attending the UN Summit, while 125 world leaders had made it a priority.
Other speakers included Lismore Greens candidate Adam Guise and Lismore City councillor Simon Clough.
