Walk Against Warming in Melbourne, 11 November

Banner at head of walk

Melbourne once again put on a spectacular event to mark the annual Walk Against Warming, with numbers quite comparable to last year’s, and the added urgency of the upcoming election much in evidence. This time organisers chose to start at the State Library, which was better suited for the purpose than the Town Hall as last year, and the walk ended in the Alexandra Gardens, which was obviously a popular choice. Tim Costello of World Vision was the main speaker, and the banners, placards and other props spoke for themselves.
