We're getting together on the Esplanade to make our message fun, creative and loud!

Some things you can do on the day:

  1. Dress up in red, orange and yellow
  2. Bring climate action now signs
  3. Bring along props and placards that are heat and fire related 
  4. We will also be using corflute letters to spell out No New Coal or Gas with Corflute Letters.

If you need help getting creative, come to our craftanoon: Wed 22nd November 4-6pm at CAFNEC (drop in/out whenever)

Why does this matter?

Fires are already tearing through the Atherton Tablelands and Cape York, Gimuy (Cairns) is heating up and we're all worried about the reef and the rainforest this El Nino. We know that burning fossil fuels is the leading cause of increasing global temperatures. 

From First Nations communities seeing their Country destroyed by coal and gas, to Pacific nations suffering super storms and rising seas, and communities bracing for bushfires after floods - a resounding call is coming for our Governments to act on the climate crisis.

But, the Labor Government is failing the number one test - by giving new approvals to coal and gas corporations - pouring more fuel on the fire.

That’s why From December 4-12 during the global climate talks people from all over Australia will be taking action in their communities to Turn Up the Heat on decision makers! 

Join us to call for strong action on climate change, No New Coal or Gas!
