Start: Saturday, September 08, 2018•11:00 AM
Fancy Dress Photo Shoot
Saturday 8 September, 11.00 am, Parliament House Lawns
350.org Global Day of Action
Science hasn’t worked, so let’s wake up our federal politicians to action on climate change using comedy and satire!
Join us for a Photo Shoot as our federal dinosaurs shuffle around a giant lump of coal, while the Turnbull/Abbott/Adani puppets look on.
Dress up to present your message to politicians. A character from a fairy tale, film, comic book or pop culture- the choice is yours.
Vox Populi: Make a ten second speech where you give your message on climate change to politicians, or make a written sign, or do both. This will be filmed.
Mary, Mary- “I love my garden, but right now I’m very contrary. How will my garden grow if they give all that water to massive coal mines?”
Nemo- “This hot water is killing me! Don’t burn any more fossil fuels, please!”
Koala- “The climate needs old growth forests- and so do I. I can’t live in pine plantations. Stop destroying the forests!”
Bring a blanket to sit on, and maybe some goodies to share with your friends. First Prize for best message and Second Prize for best costume.
