Rise Up Brisbane – no more coal and gas

Like the flood waters and flames, we rise up 🌊πŸ”₯

Across the continent, our communities have faced a summer of devastating climate impacts, from life threatening cyclones, floods and fires to sweltering heat waves. Yet fossil fuel companies are fuelling the flames of the crisis, pushing ahead with risky coal and gas.

Despite being elected in a historic wave of support for climate action, the Albanese government has fundamentally failed in the number one test of climate leadership: saying NO to more coal and gas projects.Β
