Join me at Climate Camp

camp-posterFor three days in October, from Friday 9th—Sunday 11th, I’ll be camping in my little tent alongside hundreds of others at Climate Camp ’09 . 

Set up among the trees near Australia’s oldest coal mine on Dharawal land in in Helensburgh, NSW (40 minutes south of Sydney),  Climate Camp ’09 will be an entirely sustainable solar-powered event.

Climate Camp is for everyone — because when it comes to water, climate and jobs, actions speak louder than words. And getting a strong message to the government grows more urgent every day. By joining us, show them you demand a different future than the dark one offered by coal and its apparently entrenched supporters. 
This is a family event — come for the three days or come for an afternoon — for great workshops, music, art, food and positive climate action. Most importantly, if you can, please come along to swell the numbers at the powerful and peaceful community action on Sunday October 11th. 

At Climate Camp ’08 in Newcastle, our largest coal exporting port, around 1000 people of all ages joined in an uplifting community walk to halt the coal loader.

Find out what it’s all about on the Climate Camp ’09 website.

I hope you’ll join me at Climate Camp ’09 – with your kids and parents, neighbours and friends – we’re all in this predicament together and we all want a better future.  Let’s make it happen!

  1. Hi Margaret,
    Just back at 5pm from Tamworth, where I awoke at the motel to find my red Suzi was orange-coated. As I drove back south, the dust became the more familiar brown from the opencut mines, but at home here, I am high enough to actually see sky, so must be above the duct layer, although the mountains around me look very hazy. Very little open dirt in the midst of forest like this; can’t see much dust deposits, although clearly we’ve had high winds. Maybe the 13.5mm of rain in my gauge since I left early yesterday helped.
