You can still add your name to the 330,000 other Australians calling on parliament to declare a climate emergency – it closes on 16 October 2019:
“On September 20th, more than 300,000 Australians protested around the country, uniting with millions worldwide to demand that our governments take serious and immediate action.
You may have already seen a number of petitions circulating on social media, however there is an official parliamentary e-petition that closes on 16th October.
This petition already has close to 330,000 signatures, which is the biggest parliamentary e-petition in Australian history. The more signatures we can add, the loader the voice!
The link to this petition is below. Please sign if you haven’t already, and if you can spare 2mins please share this link on social media and ask any of your family, friends and colleagues to also sign and share!
While petitions don’t change everything on their own, it shows our politicians that there are hundreds of thousands of voters who care about this issue, and it adds to the growing momentum of people demanding action!
Jason Gardner, Mornington Peninsula”
