Walk Against Warming 08

On 4th November 2006, nearly 100 000 people took to the streets at Walk Against Warming events in 28 locations across Australia. It was timed to coincide with UN climate change talks in Nairobi, and as an international day of action on climate change.

 

Both the Melbourne and Sydney marches attracted over 40 000 people, more than any other city marches worldwide, including London and New York.

 

Walk Against Warming participants come from all walks of life - from individuals and families, community groups, social development organisations, faith based groups, universities and schools to local councils, sporting teams, green groups, unions and small businesses.

"Walk against warming is a great way for this very important issue to get as much attention as it can. Global warming is something that affects us all no matter what race, colour or creed; rich or poor.

 

Action is the only thing that will solve this problem and help prevent many of the catastrophies that will occur if we do nothing.

 

This walk is a show of solidarity of Australians who believe in a solution to global warming, who  believe in another way of living on this planet and who believe that this generation can make a difference and are only custodians of this planet for future generations to enjoy" - John Butler
