Walk Against Warming 2010
WALK WITH THE PEOPLE. NOT THE BIG POLLUTERS.
We’re doing our bit on climate change. It’s time to make our government do theirs.
With the federal election looming, we decided to hold a Walk Against Warming to demand that our next government faces up to their responsibilities on climate change. Hundreds of people turned out to remind them that to secure our votes, they must walk with the people; not the big polluters.
This year we took our message for a safe climate straight to the people that matter most – the voters.
We coordinated hundreds of Victorians in three key areas to come together and letterbox. We wanted to make sure that voters in those areas knew exactly what actions our leaders needed to take on climate change.
That means that less than one week before the federal election, up to 300,000 of the most influential voters in Victoria received our safe climate message. How good!
HELP US CELEBRATE! If you took part in the day, you're invited to celebrate with us after you've finished letterboxing. Anytime from 4.00pm to 7.00pm at The Workers Club, Corner Gertrude Street and Brunswick Street Fitzroy (accessible by tram 86, tram 112 or 10 minutes walk from Parliament Station).
