We need the biggest crowd ever ( including as many students as possible) at the Council meeting in Murwillumbah at 4.30pm on 19 September to send the conservative Councillors an overwhelming message that we want them to vote with Greens Mayor Katie Milne and declare a CLIMATE EMERGENCY!!!
The meeting will start at 5.30pm however members of the community can put their point of view to the Councillors at the Public Forum from 4.30pm onwards and Barry Firth will be doing so regarding the Climate emergency motion. If anyone else would like to present their view please ring Tweed Council on 02 66702400 and ask to be booked in for “Public Forum”. (Speakers’ allocations are limited, and they may already be fully taken up.)
Mayor Katie Milne is tabling a motion at the coming Council meeting on 19 September calling for Council to :
- Declare that we are in a state of climate emergency that requires urgent action by all levels of government, including by local councils.
- Support the Schools Strike for Climate on the 20th September that is calling on adults to join them in the strike, and notes Council staff where practical are able to use leave entitlements if they wish to attend.
Katie is calling for Council to take account of the many compelling reasons to declare an emergency, see page 38 of the pdf at the following link to the Council agenda.
Where: Council Chambers, Murwillumbah Civic & Cultural Centre, Tumbulgum Road, Murwillumbah
When: From 4.30pm
