The Sea is rising! The sea is rising! Look out, the sea is rising!
July 7 was marked by small but rowdy walking busses around the Auckland CBD and a march down queen st. The action organised by climaction to coincide with the live earth concerts being held around the world called for free public transport and immediate action on climate change. The march of between 1 – 2 hundred people chanted “System change not climate change” “Al gore whats the score the systems rotten to the core” and “one solution Revolution”. A model coal power station was wheeled down queen st and members of several groups working on climate change were present. Around 30 members of the police kept the march surrounded and the public was highly supportive of the event.
