The need for urgent action on climate change will be a key focus in the lead-up to the Federal Election on May 21.
Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC) representatives held a silent pre-dawn protest outside the Prime Minister’s Sydney residence recently.
About 40 people gathered outside Kirribilli House before dawn on March 31. Demonstrators said they were there to stand in solidarity with flood-affected people in Lismore, Byron, and the Northern Rivers region.
Earlier this year, the Good Samaritan Sisters at Lawson ordered a banner (pictured) from ARRCC. The banner is hanging on their front fence at 253 Great Western Highway, where it is seen by thousands of passing motorists every day.
ARRCC is asking faith communities to place their orders and hang the banners during the election campaign. The aim is for at least 100 banners to be on display around Australia.
All the information for designing and ordering a banner can be found on the ARRCC website.
