Climate Petition Update - Sun 30 July
Climate Petition Update.
The Climate Petition for the North Sydney Electorate was handed to Trent Zimmerman MP, Federal Member for North Sydney, on Tuesday 25 July. The petitions for other electorates will be handed to the MP’s over the next few weeks. The North Sydney petition contained just over 1430 signatures which were collected at a number of church, school and community activities – many signatures came from parishioners of Our Lady of the Way.
The petition was delivered by a delegation consisting of Monique Manning and Sophia Skarparis (both students from Monte Sant’ Angelo and parishioners); Geoff Maddox (from Pitt Street Uniting Church and ARRCC); Maggie and Tony Borger (both parishioners, Ecology Group members and members of ARRCC).
Among other things, Mr Zimmerman agreed to make a speech about the petition in Parliament and be a strong voice about the issues around Climate Change in the party room and in parliament.
Many thanks to all who signed.
