The masters of ‘zero to hero’

Gary Opit (Echo letters, 11 Sept) is right: may we all be connected and soon see the power of our thoughts and actions. On October 7 and the following days we have a global opportunity to demonstrate the power of the people, in Brisbane.

We intend to create a million arguments about global heating and climate catastrophe by simply blocking roads.

Through non-violent civil disobedience we will raise the temperature of discussion. Sitting on the fence and pretending or believing that our predicament is not serious will no longer be an option.

We invite you to join us, young and old, right and left, rich and poor, adult and child, to stand in solidarity for a positive future. Our numbers are building.

In case you don’t know, Extinction Rebellion is committed to a declaration of climate emergency by state and federal governments, truthful media, a rapid U-turn on greenhouse emissions, and citizens’ assemblies to set emission-reductions policies.

Together in the coming months, hopefully with Gary Opit and the media, we will be responsible for beginning the healing of the living surface of our planet.
