The group School Strike 4 Climate are calling on the community to join in a Sit Down outside the Council offices on Friday November 29th from 1:40pm to 2:30pm.
The Sit Down organised for Nov 29th by the School Strike 4 Climate will no doubt bring the youth of the region back to the Eurobodalla Council forecourt where it is speculated that only Councillors McGinlay and Mayne will meet the students while the other seven councillors, including the Mayor, The general Manager and senior executives will remain in "The Bunker". School Strike 4 Climate representatives are clear in their message saying "Our Government’s inaction on the climate crisis is contributing to catastrophic fire conditions. People are hurting. Communities are being devastated. And summer hasn’t even begun. "But rather than take real action on the climate crisis, all our Government offers is their thoughts, prayers and more support for coal, oil and gas projects. "Our Government has repeatedly ignored Indigenous leaders and firefighters’ warnings of a spiralling bushfire crisis. And they have failed to provide the support needed to manage country and bushfires in a time of climate crisis. They need to be held to account. "On November 29, join all of us at Solidarity Sit-Downs to demand increased support for Indigenous land management and the Rural Fire Service and real climate action"
"Together, we’ll sit shoulder to shoulder outside the offices of our Councils across Australia and hear from those on the frontline of the climate crisis. "Bring a cushion, and together let’s show solidarity with everyone on the frontlines of the climate crisis."
