Time’s Up Rally held in Batemans Bay

Last Sunday, July 30th 2023, local climate action group 350 Eurobodalla ran a rally calling for stronger climate action at Batemans Bay Foreshore Park.

As the world suffers yet further record-smashing heatwaves and bushfires we're calling time. Governments have had long enough,’ said Jack Egan of 350 Eurobodalla. ‘We're not waiting any longer. Time's Up and we're getting out to tell our local members of local, state and federal governments that we demand proper climate action now.’

‘We' are calling out new coal and gas approvals, continued logging of our public native forests, threatened marine ecologies and half-hearted implementation of Council's Climate Action Plan. And we're shouting loud and clear that we want a future for our kids and nature which Eurobodalla treasures,’ said Egan.

Locals of all political persuasions were invited to join in and add their voice to the one hour event.

‘The protest is about hope as well as anger. In coming together creatively as a community we reaffirm trust in our collective ability to build a better future,’ added Egan.

‘Let's be louder in the ears of our local representatives than the vested interests that are taking us down to climate hell,’ says Egan.

The video above features strong messages from the speakers including Walbunja Elder Uncle Bunja Smith and dynamic cheerleading from the Cheerleaders for Radical Climate Action who feature from the 8:13 time point.
