Kudos to the Yass To Climate Action organisers who helped the local kids put on rally in support of the Global Strike for Climate. It was the first climate change rally held in Yass, with many people of all ages turning up to show their support. Yay, go Yass!
Although I’m not a resident of Yass (yet), I can trace my family roots back to Yass with a distant family member settling in Yass in early colonial times before finally moving further north. Perhaps that’s why I feel such a connection with the town.
The kids don’t want our platitudes. They want us adults to get on with taking climate action that is going to make a real difference to their future. Here are a few photos to mark the peaceful protest and the goodwill of this small community.
And now for a Friday song. I’ve chosen this protest song by the band, Lime and Steel. I first heard this band in the Yass Memorial Hall a few years ago. The band members have now gone their separate ways, but their tunes live on.
Let’s get off the couch, switch it up a notch, and sing it out loud. Oo-ee!
