Right now, the government is deciding how to spend billions in public money to help with the Covid-19 crisis. It's a critical opportunity for them to fund our future, by creating jobs that will Care for Country, fast-track solutions to climate change, and transition Australia to renewable energy.
Instead, secret plans have revealed that the Federal Government is planning to give billions to their mates in the dirty gas industry. Gas is a dangerous fossil fuel that will turbocharge the climate crisis. Even worse, many destructive gas projects threaten First Nations lands.
This is why on Friday September 25th, along with hundreds of others around QLD, the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (Townsville) will be setting up a stall on the Strand to have conversations about the dangerous reality of gas & the benefits of a Renewable lead recovery! We invite the public come & help paint messages/
