March for our future #stopAdani 8/12/2018

Snap protests for climate action and to stop Adani were called in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns for Saturday 8th December that attracted thousands of people.

The climate movement has been invigorated by the recent student strikes for climate action on Friday November 30, the occupation of Parliament House foyer, and the urgency of the recent IPCC 1.5C science report. We have a climate emergency.

Melbourne school kids climate strike on November 30

School strike – climate strike

School kids in Melbourne are going on climate strike this Friday, 30 November, and gathering outside the Victorian Parliament.

Climate Action Moreland endorses this action by youth challenging our leaders to ramp up action on emissions reduction, renewables rollout as part of the energy transition, more funding to public transport and cycling to increase transport mode share change and reduce transport emissions.

We have a climate emergency that needs rapid transformative action. The recent IPCC 1.5C report makes that abundantly clear.

Vote Climate in the Victorian state election 2018

Our index page for the Victorian state election in 2018 and our campaign on climate change and climate action. Climate Action Moreland campaigns on climate issues for the state electorates of Brunswick, Pascoe Vale and Broadmeadows, and the Northern Metro Region (Upper House).

Update Note: 29 November: Brunswick count continuing with the Greens candidate Tim Read 350 votes ahead of Labor’s Cindy O’Connor. Pascoe Vale count continuing with sitting MP Labor’s Lizzie Blandthorn likely to be easily returned on preferences. Pascoe Vale was previously a safe Labor seat.

In the Upper House it is likely the Greens will be reduced from 5 MLCs to just 1 MLC (Samantha Ratnam), due to the tight preferencing of minor parties using group voting tickets. The Counting is continuing for the Legislative Council.

At the Brunswick prepoll station for the Victorian election the Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio was handing out How to Vote cards for Brunswick Labor Candidate Cindy O’Connor.

As Cindy has already signed the climate emergency declaration, I asked Ms D’Ambrosio if she would consider signing the declaration. After a short period considering the request, she accepted and signed the declaration.
