COP 27 Protest - Stop Australia expanding fossil fuels, climate justice now!
Sydney Town Hall
The COP27 global climate summit in November will see renewed scrutiny of the Australian government’s climate policies. The Albanese government has increased the country’s emissions reduction target to 43 per cent by 2030, but this is still far below that needed to keep warming to safe levels.
The climate crisis is already here. One third of Pakistan is under water, NSW is facing more flooding, Europe is seeing its worst drought in 500 years and China the worst drought in human history.
We need an urgent program of publicly-funded and owned renewable energy and funding for jobs and a just transition to rapidly cut emissions.
Join us to protest during COP27 to demand an end to Australia’s fossil fuel expansion and the urgent action on climate change we need.
