A Message From Our President:
The recent election was the most successful our group has participated in (and we’ve been part of the election scene on the mid north coast since 2007!) Here’s what we got up to: doorknocking, letter-boxing, two ‘Pollution-Free-Politics’ rallies (in Port and Coffs), an action at the National MP’s office on Gordon Street, attendance at three forums, media stories, and a new website and video – see www.votesafeclimate.org.au
The politics of tackling climate change is as complex as it is urgent. As the new government considers our nation’s future, the most urgent task is a complete overhaul of climate and energy polices. Not only would better policies be good for saving life on the planet and securing a safe climate for us to live under, they would create new jobs in clean energy, modernise the economy, help fix the budget deficit and be very popular with voters - 76% of swinging voters are either ‘fairly’ or ‘very’ concerned about climate change. Seems like a ‘no brainer’, but will they do it? We must remain active - activism is the rent we must pay for living on Mother Earth.
