Sign, sign, everywhere a sign…

Yesterday, thousands of people went to St Kilda beach to send a message with our bodies to our so called leaders on climate change. The wording of the sign was chosen by local grade six student Sophie Dickinson.

Yarra Climate Action Now was a proud participant in this event, brilliantly organised by Locals Into Victoria’s Environment, supported by Bayside Climate Change Action Group, both local climate action groups in Melbourne.

The sign stretched for 350m and we are yet to hear if it broke the record for the world’s biggest human sign.

Kevin Rudd are you listening? John Brumby are you listening?

Our future is more important than the vested interests of a few large corporations. We need you to listen to the scientists and transition our country to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible. That means stop giving money to the big polluters, and invest in a green future and green jobs. Now.

If an eleven year old child can see it so clearly, why can’t you?
