This weekend in cities around Australia there will be a number of climate change rallies to call for a strong price on carbon pollution and a cleaner Australia. The Brisbane rally is known as 'Say Yes to Climate Action'. It is being held at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Stage between 1 & 2:30pm on 5 June 2011.
This rally is being organised by the 'Yes Australia' group, which is comprised of a number of organisations including the Australian Conservation Foundation, Australian Council of Trade Unions, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Climate Action Network Australia, Environment Victoria, GetUp, Greenpeace, The Climate Institute and WWF. I have seen this advertised on the GetUp website. There is also a facebook page which you can RSVP to indicating your intent to attend.
If you're in one of the capital cities that are holding such an event, please go along and show your support for a brighter future for Australia, investment in innovation and your desire to have a future for the human species.
Community action and support is the best part of a democratic society, so use this opportunity to our country's advantage!
