Diane joined Bunbury school students and workers today for the global #ClimateStrike, as young and young-at-heart alike came together to demand urgent action on the climate crisis.
Amazing scenes played out across the nation, with hundreds of thousands of Australians in capital cities and regional centres turning out, just three days before world leaders meet in New York for the United Nations Emergency Climate Summit.
Diane thanks all those who came together in the spirit of hope and regeneration. The multiple — and increasing — School Strikes 4 Climate and Fridays for Future protests in the South West Region, Perth CBD and at Parliament House have inspired many to recognise current democratic processes are not moving quickly enough. Whether it is Greta Thunberg internationally or the South West Region’s own young activist leaders, like Bella Burgemeister from Bunbury, the youth of today will not stand for the failings of yesterday.
