Gold Pass for Bronwyn

Climate action group inc3 (Inner Northwest Climate Change Community – http://www.inc3.info/) are holding a screening of the climate change movie ‘Age of Stupid’ on 22 February (details on website – http://www.inc3.info/index.php/film-night) and thought it appropriate to invite the local state and federal members. Paul Connor from the group delivered the gold passes, carefully handmade and personalised, by hand yesterday to the offices of Bronwyn Pike, State MLA for Melbourne, and Lindsay Tanner MP, Federal Minister for Finance and Deregulation:

The Federal Minister was unfortunately not on hand to take delivery, but his receptionist accepted it on his behalf:

Bronwyn Pike, on the other hand, left a meeting to meet the group’s representative, and expressed considerable interest in its activities:

She was not, however, prepared to commit to attending the screening…
