Sept 20th , 2019 Global Climate Strike. #climatestrike
The point of protest is to draw attention â€“ to wave your arms, shout your demands, make people stop and think. Australia isnâ€™t known for these types of spectacles â€“ a mixture of apathy (â€śno one caresâ€ť), and tall poppy syndrome (â€śI donâ€™t want to bignote myselfâ€ť) and fragile privilege keeps people in check, and off the streets. On my way to the School Strike for Climate with my son, a man lent in and suggested we â€śget a jobâ€ť. I was very happy to see such an amazing turnout â€“ unprecedented â€“ with tallies coming in at 150,000. Maybe things are changing. And my son could put paid to that manâ€™s comment â€śNo jobs if thereâ€™s no planet, Dadâ€ť.
