Bridge Walk! 1.30 pm Sunday 5th June

Tell your friends.  Tell your colleagues.  Bring your family... to the biggest event on Canberra's climate calendar in 2011.
Meet at Regatta Point for music, kid's activities, and informed and inspirational talks to be followed by a march to Parliament.
Show our parliamentarians that we want Real Climate Action Now.  Make your voice count for a Safe Climate Future.
Climate experts are telling us that we must act now to avoid extreme weather events and catastrophic climate change, but our federal parliament is treating the subject as simply another political contest.
A carbon price is essential but Australia must also embark urgently on creating base load power using renewable energy, new land management practices to draw down carbon and a phase out of fossil fuel as our source of energy. This will create thousands of new jobs.
Come rain or shine on Sunday June 5 to join a huge crowd walk across Commonwealth Bridge to Parliament House, to tell our parliamentarians to:

Say ‘Yes’ to Real Climate Action Now!

Walk begins at 1.30 pm on Sunday, 5 June at Regatta Point, near the bridge.
Live music and Children’s activities
Hear from: John Hewson, Richard Denniss, Bishop Pat Power, Linsey Cole, Gosta Lynga, Lin Hatfield Dodds and Phoebe Howe.
