COP28 Rally

The months from June to August were the three hottest on record globally, as extreme heat and fires swept Canada, Hawaii, and the Mediterranean basin. Australia is heading into an El Nino summer, with the worst bushfires since 2020 expected.
This year's COP28 global climate summit again shows world leaders refusing to take the climate crisis seriously. The summit is being hosted by the United Arab Emirates, a major oil and gas producer, with an oil executive overseeing the talks.
In Australia the Labor government is still pouring fuel on the fire, approving new coal and gas projects that will increase emissions. In NSW the largest coal power station in the country, Eraring, is set to have its life extended. Instead of more money for fossil fuels we need an urgent program of government investment to rollout renewable energy and electrify everything, as well as ensure well-paid jobs for workers in affected industries.
Governments need to listen to Indigenous communities opposing new fossil fuel mining developments on their lands, from the Pilliga gas project in NSW to the Beetaloo and Barossa developments in the NT, Woodside's gas plans in WA and the new coal mines across the country.
The Australian government wants the support of Pacific leaders to host a future COP climate summit, but is ignoring their calls to end new fossil fuel projects. We should be extending solidarity and support to Pacific island nations threatened with annihilation from climate change.
Join this protest during the COP28 summit to demand urgent climate action and an end to new fossil fuel projects.
