Geelong School Strike March 15th.

Over 1,000 concerned eco-warriors, young and old, turned out in #Geelong this morning urging for more action on climate change. The group, led by Kardinia students Laura Kelly, Noemi Walton and Jude Corbet, were vocal and determined. They met at 9am outside Richard Marles Office. Marles addressed the groups to shouts of “Stop Adani!” and “you need to do more!”

They marched, placards waving, to City Hall, accompanied by drumming and chanting by the Junk Yard Band from Geelong Sustainability. Here students addressed the passionate crowd. They spoke of hope and the need for continued pressure. Many went on to join the Melbourne #schoolstrike4future #gretathunberg inspired #fridaysforfuture It’s fantastic to hear that Greta has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
