Media alert: Pacific climate demonstration outside Australian Parliament < 1 mins read

Pacific climate activists will hold a demonstration outside the Australian Parliament, demanding a stronger consideration of Pacific priorities in federal climate policy. As the nation prepares for next year’s elections and the potential COP31 presidency, the Pacific Climate Warriors are calling for genuine climate leadership from the Australian government. 

This demonstration concludes a week of action across Australia dubbed Rise Up, as Australian people demand more ambitious climate commitments in the lead up to federal elections and COP31.

WHERE: Parliament House Lawns, • Parliament Drive, Canberra

WHEN: Friday 10 May, 2024 12:00PM

Joseph Sikulu, Pacific Managing Director says,

“We consider Australia our home and a neighbour to many of our island nations, and it’s time that the Australian government live up to that relationship. Next year we head to the polls to decide the future of Australia, and with that we potentially decide the future of the Pacific. 

Australia’s bid for COP31 has the potential to spotlight the country as a leader of the renewable energy build. But we need to make sure we don’t leave any communities behind and that the energy transition happens swiftly and equitably. When the fossil phase out happens, and it must happen, it needs to be replaced with safe, clean and fair renewable energy for all communities.”
