Understorey: Climate Emergency 2019~Extinction Rebellion WA

Wednesday 26th June / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Fremantle, Sydney and Newcastle have declared a climate emergency, but our state and federal governments remain silent, with no coordinated plan of action. On Saturday young and old turned up in Perth's CBD for Western Australia's first Extinction Rebellion ‘die-in and dance party’ . Hundreds lent their support to a first public reading of their Climate Emergency declaration, joining an emerging global protest movement that requires far more of government and industry than their business-as-usual reassurances. Understorey joined those in the rain, well-briefed in advance by Ewan Buckley, who shares his journey to Extinction Rebellion, and what lies beyond. (Image:Facebook)
