JOIN US IN REBELLION!
5 to 10 December in Naarm/Melbourne
Climate breakdown has begun
Stop the blah, blah, blah
December Rebellion coincides with the last week of the COP28 United Nations climate talks happening in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE is one of the few countries in the world with higher per capita greenhouse gas emissions than Australia.
After 27 similar festivals of ‘blah, blah, blah’, with the evidence of climate breakdown all around, and a federal government still approving new coal and gas projects, it is clear that politics-as-usual is not capable of delivering the emergency transition we so desperately need.
It’s up to us! When governments fail, it's the people who must rise up and make change. Join us and demand a better world.
