Stepping Up Together: Energy in the room delights grandfather and organizer
19:22Robert Patterson (pictured) dug deep into his own pocket to ensure the success of the September 9 "Stepping Up Together" forum at the Melbourne Town Hall driven by two things - first, the inaction of our decision makers (politicians) and the ever-growing concern he has for his grandchildren. During our conversation, Robert mentioned climate action in Newcastle. This story will help people better understand what is happening at the New South Wales city - "Two climate activists cause havoc at ports in Newcastle and Melbourne in Blockade Australia's eighth demonstration this week". Robert, and supporters from Geelong, have created and put to work the Letition idea, which they believe can change the conversation if people from throughout Australia follow guidelines set out on the "Letition.org" web page. The Geelong group is "A Different Approach Community Climate Action in Australia - (ADAC)". --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/robert-mclean/message
Stepping Up Together: 'Everyday the Labor Party is justifying opening new coal mines and gas wells, it's obscene' - Greens Senator Janet Rice
12:18Politicians were something of a rarity at the Saturday, September 9, "Stepping Up Together" forum at the Melbourne Town Hall, but the one who did show and delivered a powerful message was Victorian Greens Senator, Janet Rice (pictured). Senator Rice described as "obscene" the Labor Party's constant justification of its push to open new coal mines and sink new gas wells, or back the gas fracking process. About 70 people sat through and enjoyed the three-hour forum that attempted to pull together disparate environment groups in a bid to draw up a joint statement of intent and hopefully, both shift and advance the climate conversation. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/robert-mclean/message
