Can’t be many more important campaigns than saving the planet right? Only people power will change the current economic levers which are designed to burn burn burn. We have the chance to join with others around the world ahead of the climate talks in Paris to send a strong message to our Government that we want NZ to maximise its contribution to this programme.
On 27 and 28 November just before the climate talks in Paris, the “Peoples Climate March” will take place around the world including in NZ to call for a real climate action plan from that conference. One that will reverse the growth of carbon pollution and reverse the terrible destruction of the planet through climate change.
These are expected to be the biggest demonstrations on climate on the planet and we need to do our part in NZ with a Government that to date has shown no commitment to playing its role in this agenda. Don’t miss them!

Climate change is a workers issue – there are no jobs on a dead planet. We need to ensure climate change trends are reversed and the economic and social impacts of making that change are managed so that there is a ‘just transition’ to decent jobs in a greener environment.
I will be there – I hope to see you there too!
