The Moruya Climate sit-in started by local woman Russelle Wannell is growing. Russelle says, “I am a grandmother who thought of an idea to sit at the roundabout in front of council chambers to express my concern, sitting every Friday morning between 9.00 – 11.00 am, a place where I thought I would be visible. "After the first Friday morning on my own a few other grandmothers and grandfathers, people who saw my sign and sharing my concern for our planet and our grandchildren’s future, joined me to witness in silence to what we all believe is a terrible threat to our planet, believing climate change is now more than a threat, it is a planet in crisis and that too much talking has been done and not enough ACTION taken.”
If you would like to join Russelle, and others, she will be in the front of council chambers near the roundabout in Moruya each Friday morning from 9am to 11am. Make sure to bring a hat or brolly and something to sit on.
