Last year began in flames and ended with floods. It was this continent’s fourth-warmest year on record, while 2019 was the hottest and driest ever documented.
As politicians from all sides spin lies and make promises about Australia taking meaningful climate action, this continent has already warmed by 1.44 degrees since pre-industrial levels. 1.5 degree targets, like those set out in the Paris Climate Agreement, are calculated political deceit, designed to pacify the public.
Come to Sydney this November and blockade the streets of Australia’s most important political and economic centre, to cause disruption that cannot be ignored. Change is necessary for survival, as Australia continues to block climate action, we will blockade Australia.
