|Break Free Dunedin 2016
Break Free, the global movement of action against fossil fuels, is underway. We have never faced an injustice as great as climate change. We need to scale up our response to match the urgency of the crisis.
And crikey, it's happening! People are stopping climate-destroying activities all over the place, from Wales
in the UK, to Newcastle
in Australia. There's more to come - Brazil, Canada, Ecuador, Nigeria, Germany...
Here in Aotearoa last Saturday around 100 people (and a penguin) closed the Riccarton Branch of the ANZ for the day.
That's because ANZ is funding and profiting from climate change. ANZ is one of the biggest funders of fossil fuel extraction projects in our part of the world - that doesn't sound like a company that takes its responsibilities seriously!
Come on Dunedin, it's our turn!
- 5:30pm Wed 11 May Knox Church - briefing and training
- 8am Thursday 12 May Octagon - action! (note the time change from 7:30am)
(PS: - There will be many levels of involvement at this demonstration of peaceful civil disobedience. We welcome all ages and all support. Please join us - but be warned - you may enjoy yourself!)
