Walk Against Warming, Fremantle 2010

August 17th, 2010


Yesterday two or three thousand people converged on the Fremantle Esplanade to protest government inaction on climate change.  At the end of this week Australia will vote on our next federal government, and it was a good time for this national day of protest to take place (not to mention the climate change disaster events in Russia and Pakistan hot in the news).  In Perth we had a great day of sunshine, and as you’ll hear if you listen to my radio broadcast at 11.30am on Wednesday morning 18 August RTR 92.1 FM, there was some good music from the likes of John Butler to be heard.

Actually one of the highlights of the day for me was the righteous anger of John Butler as he told WA Premier Colin Barnett that you’re going the wrong way down a one way road.  In a finger pickin’ style, of course.

If you live in Perth and didn’t make it to the Esplanade, then listen to the radio on Wednesday.
