Mayor apparently too busy to meet students

The Beagle Editor, Yesterday students from Moruya assembled to pass their message on to the Council that they wanted Council to represent them and advocate on the community's behalf to State and Federal government on the looming climate crisis. After listening to several speakers the assembled students, parents and supporters turned and faced the council chambers chanting ‘Eurobodalla shire council declare a climate emergency’ to then take their Sit-in to the entrance of the Council building holding their signs.

One student went in and ask the mayor to come and speak to them. When she was told the Mayor is busy, she demanded that they pass on the message, that she needs to declare a climate emergency! The event once again drew to the attention of Council that the children of the shire, as residents, also demand that councillors represent them and not just those old enough to vote or pay rates. Meanwhile the Sit-In collect funds for people affected by the bushfires. A pretty impressive group of kids. Name and address supplied
