Meet at Pacific Park Newcastle, Saturday February 22 at 2pm
The rally will then march to Civic Park where we will enjoy speeches and music.
We will stand together demanding government action and investment on a scale to match the current climate crisis, including:
1. 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY. Build a 100% publicly owned renewable energy system by 2030. Guaranteed jobs for affected fossil fuel workers. Just transition for communities. Good low-emissions jobs in energy, transport, manufacturing, disaster relief, health and education.
2. NO NEW FOSSIL FUEL OR NUCLEAR PROJECTS. End subsidies to these industries.
3. FUND OUR FIRIES. Increase funding and resources to cope with longer and more intense fire seasons. Pay rural firefighters and reverse cuts to parks and fire services.
4.FIRST NATIONS JUSTICE. Funding for Indigenous-led land management with jobs on country to repair ecosystems, reduce emissions and reduce fire risk. Land and water rights for Indigenous peoples.
