The organisers expected 10,000 people to turn up at the State Library yesterday to walk against warming.  We wanted to send a strong message to the politicians at Copenhagen that we want a deal that will tackle climate change.

  1. Wow, what a great turn-out! We only had 3000, maybe 4000 in Perth – but it was 39 degrees so I think we would have had more if it’d been just a little cooler (oh, the irony!).
