Fund the Firies and Demand Climate Justice
From the organiser...
This event will take place on stolen land in Mulubinba, as known as ‘Newcastle’. Sovereignty was never ceded.
In solidarity with other cities around Australia, Newcastle will be protesting the severe dearth of funding to our brave fire fighters and lack of action on climate change.
You are welcome to bring signs and banners. Come dressed in red.

Love and rage,
