Turn Up the Heat Week of Action: December 4-12
The country is burning, our communities are sweltering. It’s only spring. A terrifying summer looms.
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 Move Beyond Coal teams and grassroots climate groups across the country will be taking action in their communities to Turn Up the Heat on Labor.
Scroll down to the map below to join an action or host your own.
What’s being planned?
Move Beyond Coal teams and grassroots groups across the country will be taking action at MPs offices and in the streets between Monday 4th and Tuesday 12th December. We’re aiming for dozens of actions in Federal Electorates.
Actions will take place in December and it's going to be hot, we're already seeing bushfires rage so let's get creative around the theme of HEAT. We are aiming for a tone of staunch solidarity with communities being impacted by the climate crisis now.
- In Labor seats - take action at your Federal MPs office, directly calling on them and Prime Minister Albanese to stop new coal and gas.
- In Coalition seats - take action in a high profile public place, Labor needs to see that even areas considered politically conservative want climate action.
- In Teal/Green seats - take action in a high profile public place and show how strong the support for climate action is in your seat.
