Walk Against Warming, Australia

The Global Day of Action came early to Australia when, on 15 November 2008, a Walk Against Warming saw concerned citizens from Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and Northern Territory come together in their respective cities to show our political leaders that Australians are deeply concerned about global warming.

These photos are from the Brisbane walk where local campaigners, Elissa Jenkins and Emma Hine, held an APGN banner and were followed behind by many Greens supporters with their Green triangles.

APGN was also given the opportunity to display a banner on the central stage. The dancers are from a West Papua dance troup.

On December 6, the International Day of Action on Climate Change, events will be happening to coincide with the UN negotiations on a global climate agreement in Poland.

This occasion will be marked in Australia with further Walk Against Warming marches in Sydney and Canberra.
