Honk for real action on climate change

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Volunteers from CAM met outside Jane Garrett’s campaign office last Tuesday, to highlight Labor’s poor record on climate change action. Sydney Road Commuters were treated to the spectacle of a huge smoke stack and placards spelling out Labor’s “dirty little election secret” – A new coal fired power station in the Latrobe Valley.

There was also a sign prompting drivers to ‘Honk for real action on climate change’. I was personally surprised at the rate of honks, smiles and well wishes that came from the drivers. You could even see a few passengers lean across the driver to honk the horn on their behalf.

It was a very positive experience with dozens of cyclists ringing their bells in harmony with car horns and a fire engine that let out a massive blast as the crew returned to base.

So positive an experience was it that CAM are returning this Tuesday for more honking. So if you want an opportunity to tell hundreds of Morelanders about Labor’s addiction to coal in a really empowering way – come along.
