While prime minister Tony Abbott left climate change off the agenda for the upcoming world leader G20 talks in Brisbane, it hasn’t stopped local activist Suzie Mylecharane from taking up the slack.

‘I took up the Australian Conservation Foundation call-out for communities to organise their own climate change discussion because Abbott left it out of the G20 talks,’ she says.

Both Suzie and Noel Jeffries from Travelling Flicks are organising two nights of discussion and movies at the Mullum Drill Hall, tonight and tomorrow (November 14 and 15).

‘Come to show support for a clear message to the government that we want more clean energy,’ says Suzie.

‘We must save our Renewable Energy Target.’
