Illawarra environment day
The second World Environment Day march in the Illawarra, on Sunday, June 5, will be a fun, loud celebration of the theme "Save our coastlines".
"The Illawarra is truly gifted with its escarpment and pristine coastline", Damien Cahill from the WED organising committee explains, "and by seizing World Environment Day as an exciting opportunity for the community, trade unions and environment movement to network, we will be ensuring we are best equipped to unite for future struggles".
The celebration starts with a march through the centre of town at 10am, to the shopping mall where community representatives will address the crowd. The carnival section of afternoon begins with bands, stalls and street theatre, and there will be an opportunity for anyone to have their say through an open platform.
