In Paris in November, world leaders will meet to make decisions about cutting pollution and tackling climate change. Each and every country must take action.
But right now, the Abbott government is taking us backwards. In just one year, Australia has:
Slid from 11th to 39th for clean energy investment
Killed the law that made polluters pay
Tried to take climate change off the global G20 agenda
We want a government that stands up for our communities, not one that is the puppet of the big polluting companies.
This year, we’ll show our politicians we want a clean and safe – not dirty and dangerous – energy future. And we’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen. Together, with you and hundreds of thousands of other Australians, our voice can be louder and more powerful than any ad campaign.
We’ll organise in our towns, suburbs, workplaces, schools and communities to work together to build the pressure for politicians to put our communities and our future first.
We’ll demonstrate that even if our political decision makers aren’t ready to lead, we are. And we expect that leadership from the people we vote for.
