I encourage you to join a major rally in support of urgent government action and a price on pollution in Belmore Park this Saturday at 11am.
Unfortunately climate change sceptics and shock jocks are trying to highjack the climate debate by organising protests around the country in response to the federal government's recently proposed price on carbon pollution. They plan to rally in Sydney on Saturday too.
An alliance of environment and community groups have organised tomorrow's rally and expect thousands. A similar event in Melbourne recently attracted an 8,000 strong crowd, far out-numbering the few hundred that rallied against a price on carbon.
Now, more than ever, it is vital that those who support action on climate change make their voices heard, and I encourage you to throw your support behind this Saturday's rally.
- Climate Rally: Saturday 2 April 11am-12 noon at Belmore Park. Information: www.getup.org.au/campaign/ClimateActionNow&id=1610
