Climate Change Sign  St Kilda 2009


Rally at Lindsay Tanners Office Re the CPRS


 

 

Sunday 17th May, 2009 was a busy day for EmFSus members. First the Climate Change rally at St Kilda Beach, followed by the container deposit rally at the steps of Parliament House in the afternoon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very peaceful demonstration outside the office of Finance Minister Mr Lindsay Tanner. We were there protesting the CPRS, David Spratt spoke to the crowd, we chanted and danced. We wrote a letter to Mr Tanner, which has not been answered. The demonstration was reported as being violent. Unbelievable!

 

 

 

 

The Sustainable House Tour to Knoxfield on Sunday 17 Aug was a terrific afternoon of inspiration.  This was a combined activity by DRREA (Dandenong Ranges Renewable Energy Assoc) & EmFSus – an enjoyable time was had by those that attended.
