Walk Against Warming Newcastle

Join us to walk against warming just days before the federal election. Let's make sure our politicians get the message loud and clear - we want climate action, not denial or delay!

We want a renewable future - not more dirty coal-fired power stations.

12pm at Wheeler Place, for rally and speeches, then we will march to the foreshore park.

Speakers include John Kaye (NSW Greens), Geoff Evans (Just Transition Report), Steve Phillips (Rising Tide) and candidates for the seat of Newcastle.

PLUS live music from Afro Moses!

Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park.
