Are Climate Activists Funny?

Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on November 6th, 2012

9 November , 2012
8:00 pmto10:00 pm

Quit Coal, Climate Action Moreland and Beyond Zero Emissions are putting on a whole night where people can come and watch climate activists trying to be funny! It is comedy for, by and about the climate movement. So it’s bound to be hilarious, right?

Plus it will be raising money to help people affected by climate change through Tulele Peisa, an organization of the people of the Carteret Islands who are organizing their own relocation as their islands are inundated by sea level rise.

So make sure you get down to the Brunswick Town Hall on November the 9th. There will drinks and prizes and the almost certain humiliation of environmental campaigners. Everybody’s favourite mining magnate Twiggy Palmcock will be making an appearance too!

Tickets $20 full, $15 concession, $30 proactive supporter, $50 Climate Champion!

BYO Tomatoes for throwing.

November 9, from 8pm
Brunswick Town Hall
233 Sydney Road, Brunswick

Help us hand over an invitation to the Premier Mr. Baillieu to come to Castlemaine for a public presentation of the Mount Alexander Sustainability Group (MASG) community wind power project.

The Coalition government recently BANNED COMMUNITY WIND FARMS from the Mount Alexander Shire and City of Bendigo east of the Calder freeway and gave us NO REASON WHY.   At the same time the Coalition government has announced the biggest expansion of COAL AND GAS MINING & EXPLORATION IN DECADES and is supporting a NEW PRIVATELY OWNED COAL POWER STATION with $50 M taxpayers’ money. We want to invite the Premier to Castlemaine so that he understands the social, environmental and financial benefits of community-owned wind power and supports renewable energy.

Show your support for community owned renewable energy this Thursday the 29th of September at 12.30pm at the Bendigo office of the Premier Level 1 56-60 King Street Bendigo

If you can’t make it send a message to the Premier Ted Baillieu and let him know how you feel 9651 5000 or ted.baillieu@parliament.vic.gov.au and ring or email Damian Drum, 5443-6277 damian.drum@parliament.vic.gov.au our Upper House member and Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Development. Tell them you want a wind industry in Victoria, that the wind industry is good for regional economies, farmers and Councils and the environment and you support a Community wind farm in the Mt Alexander Shire and want the blanket ban reversed.

For more information contact Dean on 0448 327 791 or dc@masg.org.
