More than 70 organisations have now endorsed what is planned to be Melbourne’s biggest ever climate action event on 27 November, just before international climate talks commence in Paris. And leading in to the event, screenings of the film of Naomi Klein’s book, The Changes Everything will commence in late October. In Melbourne there are screenings planned for October 19, 21, 27, 28 and November 2 and 4. Check out screening details.

Filmed in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything re-imagines the vast challenge of climate change and presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

The Melbourne People’s Climate March will be the biggest climate action event in Melbourne’s history, so put it in your diary now:  The March will be held at 5.30pm on Friday 27 November, starting at the State Library, cnr Swanston and Latrobe Streets. Check out Facebook event, and please invite your friends.

The City of Moreland has become first local government to endorse the march, thanks to work by Climate Action Moreland and Cr Sue Bolton. And as well as seven Victorian unions, the ACTU, the Victorian Trades Hall Council and Geelong Trades Hall are now supporting the Melbourne People’s Climate March. The March also welcomes as partners the Moreland Energy Foundation, the Alternate Technology Association, the Kurdish Association of Victoria and the Melbourne Eritrean United Community.

On the weekend of 27­-29 November, as world leaders arrive in Paris for the UN climate summit, people will take to the streets in hundreds of major cities around the globe as part of the largest climate mobilisation ever: the People’s Climate March. In Melbourne, a broad and diverse coalition will express the huge public support for real action on climate, hold our political leaders to account and build on existing campaigns to strengthen our movement for the longer term.
