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.

Snap Action: #StopAdani Saturday 8 December

Treat the climate crisis as a crisis – Stop Adani


The fight to stop Adani’s coal mine is at a critical turning point.

The coal corporation has announced that they are self financing the project, and want to start digging coal before Christmas. By Adani saying that they have the money to start work immediately, it looks like they are trying to pressure the government to wrap up the approvals process before the next federal election.

Which means we need to put pressure on our politicians to act now.

Where: State Library, Melbourne
When: Saturday 8 December 10.30am

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.

Hey Melbourne – Time to Rise for Climate on September 7

Climate Emergency

On September 7 and 8, thousands of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world to demand our local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us.

Join us as we hold our local leaders to account and demand that they walk the talk on climate action.

One of those events will be at the State Library in Melbourne at 6pm on Friday September 7. Join members of Climate Action Moreland and other climate activists in global solidarity calling for strong climate action.

In Australia events are being co-ordinated by 350 Australia.

Rather than hold a small event in Moreland we are throwing our support behind the City of Melbourne event at the State LIbrary.

Westpac have a better climate policy on export coal than Liberal or Labor

Thank You Westpac for new climate policy

On Friday members of Climate Action Moreland and supporters gathered on Sydney Road outside Westpac Bank. For a change we had something positive to say. We also had a load protest outside Commbank next door, before marching to Wills MP Peter Khalil’s office to push him past just opposing public subsidies to oppose the mine itself.

The Westpac Bank climate position statement and 2020 action plan is actually more aligned with Australia’s commitments under the 2015 Paris Agreement, in terms of the export coal industry, than either the Government or Labor opposition. That is not to say it is perfect, but Westpac Bank realize there is a transition to a zero carbon economy underway and their policy on investment in fossil fuels and especially coal is nuanced to that effect.
