Climate Rally flows down Swanston street 3

On December 12 2009, while the COP15 climate negotiations were taking place in Copenhagen, around the globe people protested for an ambitious and fair climate treaty. These are photos from the Melbourne Walk against Warming.

 

According to the ABC the Nature Conservation Council estimated 40,000 people took part in the march. Activists congregated in front of the State Library where speeches ocurred before marching down Swanston Street through Melbourne's CBD to Princes Bridge, where they formed a human sign to call for more meaningful action on climate change.

 

Thanks to Environment Victoria who provided a ladder for all photographers to use.
