Photos: Western Sydney marches for climate action

Hundreds of activists from Sydney's west marched through Parramatta for climate action on February 25. 

A key theme of the rally was calling on local councils in the region to declare a climate emergency.

Other demands included: a just transition for workers, protect our water, and proper funding for fire-fighters and bushfire-affected communities

The protest was organised by Parramatta Climate Action Network, Extinction Rebellion Western Sydney and Australian Youth Climate Coalition Western Sydney
