PHOTO ESSAY: Climate activists confront politician clowns

February 9, 2012

The Australian Youth Climate Coalition called a snap action outside Penny Wong's office in Adelaide on February 6. The action was supported by the Climate Emergency Action Network, the Socialist Alliance and Resistance.

It took place in the lead up to the Labor Senate Caucus discussion about priorities - making sure renewables were on the agenda. The theme was "Stop Clowning Around Labor ― Make Our Future Your Priority". About 40 people showed up at one day's notice. Photos: Gemma Weedall
