‘Vote Climate for All of Us’ – DCAN picket office of Fiona Richardson MP. Wednesday 3 November,

Protesters with placards outside the office

The stretch of High Street outside the office of ALP State MP for Northcote Fiona Richardson was more than usually noisy this morning as peak-hour motorists – and several cyclists- responded to the call from members of Darebin Climate Action Now! who were picketing the office with placards opposing the projected HRL coal-fired power station in the Latrobe valley and calling for real action on climate change.

This followed a successful action last week – see Push to Make Coal History – and will be repeated every Wednesday throughout November in the lead-up to the State Election on 27 November – see http://darebincan.wordpress.com/2010/10/02/rally-at-fiona-richardsons-office-this-wednesday-6th-october-8am-to-9am/. DCAN is also holding its own Q&A-style election forum on climate change next Monday – details on the website.
