Two hundred people protested for climate action on April 17 as part of Extinction Rebellion WA’s “Perth stops for climate”.

Protesters marched through the CBD to demand an end to fossil fuels and a funded transition to renewables. The march ended with a sit-down outside global oil and gas corporation Woodside Energy’s headquarters.
