Saturday April 2nd @11am, Belmore Park
Numbers talk and we need to get the numbers to this rally Saturday
We need to get the message out loud and clear that Australians support
a price on pollution and demand that it’s a strong one.
Across town in Hyde Park there will be an Anti-Carbon tax rally
happening at the same time with the Climate Deniers, the talkback
shock-jocks and the fear-mongering politicians. By contrast our rally
will be peaceful, positive and family friendly.
As you know, the Melbourne Climate Action rally, organised by a
coalition of NGOs and Unions, got over 8,000 people out on the street
last week while the shock-jock Anti-Carbon tax rally scrabbled
together a mere 250. On Saturday April 2nd the shock-jocks and Climate
Deniers will be in Sydney and we need to be sure that the message is
loud and clear that the climate movement is powerful and that NSW
wants real action now on Climate Change.
So we need a big turnout to get this message out unequivocally –
please get the message out to your local group members, your networks,
your friends and family.
For too long polluters have been given free reign to pollute. It’s
time that the future of all Australians is put first.
We look forward to seeing you there.
