Tamworth Climate Change Rally

The Rally is on Sunday 5 June to coincide with World Environment Day. We’ll be having leading farmers as speakers, including Anika Molesworth, the Young Australian Farmer of the Year and of Paris Climate Summit fame. Candidates for the seat of New England will also attend to tell us about their climate policies. Lunch will be available.

The federal election is our chance to put climate change and renewable energy front and centre in New England and it essential that we get a big crowd at the rally. Please everyone, you must come! Bring your signs and banners.
