Climate crisis

Under our current economic system, the drive for ever increasing profits surpasses all else. Caring for climate and ecology, human rights. It is not possible to implement the urgent solutions we need to address the climate and ecological crisis we're all facing.

Solutions lie in moving to a society that places human need first, a society that ceases to exploit and commodify people, animals and environment to generate billions for a select few.

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.

Location: Nannup Music Festival, 20 Brockman Street, Nannup, Western Australia 6275

Why is everyone talking about the climate emergency?
What does it mean?
Are we really heading for extinction?
What can we do about it?
Why are the kids striking from school to protest climate change?

In this public talk, members of Extinction Rebellion WA will share the latest climate science and offer solutions based on the study of social movements.

Note that this event is in a ticketed venue of the Nannup Music Festival.

Fires have been burning for weeks. The level of destruction by flames is unparalleled in recent history. Acres of land burnt, homes and habitats destroyed, countless lives of animals and people lost, the list goes on.

We are coming together to recognize, commemorate, and mourn for everything lost so far, and everything that will be lost in the weeks and years to come. We are feeling the effects of climate change already, and regardless of any action we take now to lower emissions, some of these changes are already irreversible.

Join us as we stand together.

For decades the Murdoch media empire has fed the Australian public a constant stream of lies, disinformation and climate denalism.

So, want to see RUPERT MURDOCH GET ARRESTED IN PERSON for the climate-denying crimes committed on a daily basis by the Murdochracy? Then come to our march for real action with a theatrical flourish.

Join us as we march through Melbourne CBD, demanding the Murdoch empire TELL THE TRUTH about the climate emergency and human induced global heating. We will begin in Treasury Gardens and make our way to News Corp headquarters.
