The federal election is just weeks away and the Passionate Planet Protectors are calling you for a march tomorrow (Friday) at 10am in Byron Bay to put pressure on both local candidates and the two major parties to commit to climate change action.
‘The government in the UK took on board this morning that we are in a climate emergency – they did this as a result of people power,’ said local organiser Sherrie Yeomans.
‘With an election coming up this is a critical time to ask the government and opposition what they are going to be doing for climate action. We want something solid regarding the action the are going to be taking, how they are going to take it on board and and show the same initiative,’ Ms Yeomans explained.
‘We are marching for #ClimateElection National Day of Action to pressure our Federal MPs like never before,’ said Ms Yeomans.
‘Everyone is invited! We’re taking action to demand all politicians urgently commit to: 1. #StopAdani. 2. No new fossil fuels. 3. 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030.’
Marchers are encouraged to gather in Railway Park at 10am then they will march to Main Beach for speakers and the opportunity to sharing thoughts on climate change.
