Roots & Shoots SA Climate Strike
SA Roots & Shoots team members joined thousands of marchers for last week’s call for climate change action.
The protest was part of a global protest which preceded the United Nations Summit in New York.
Roots & Shoots members Tash, Wendy, Emma and her children Jasmine, Sienna and Elliot met in Victoria Square and marched along North Terrace to Parliament House with an estimated crowd of 8000 students, adults and children.
Climate activists were calling for a Federal Government commitment to no new coal, oil or gas projects and renewable energy generation and exports by 2030.
An estimated 180,000 demonstrated marched at rallies around the country.
