Penrith- Declare A Climate Emergency!

Friday, March 13, 2020 - 12:00

Join the strike in Penrith for declaring a climate emergency!

Friday 13 March, 12-2pm at 510 High Street, Penrith

Penrith was the hottest place on Earth in January.

This is not normal.

Despite this, Penrith council has yet to declare a climate emergency. This is unacceptable, we are in the midst of the most devastating effects of climate change, from ravaging bushfires to the polar opposite with floods in a matter of weeks. This alone should be more than enough reason to declare a climate emergency.

Join us outside the Council Chambers on March 13, and push for a climate emergency declaration. Let Penrith council know we are not the quiet Australians they want us to be and we will fight for our future!

Our demand is simple:

Penrith council to declare a climate emergency. This will force them to take immediate action on climate change, and acknowledge that climate change is real and affecting the people in the area.

Greater Western Sydney is on the front lines of climate change and little to nothing is done about it. Now is the time to stand up and fight back!
