Oxfam Australia Flash Mob in Perth – 03-12-11

Oxfam Australia is creating a ‘flash mob’ in Forrest Chase under the big green sculpture at Perth’s CBD for the Global Day of Action. Taking place on Saturday 3rd December 2011 at 12.00pm, Oxfam is asking their supporters to pop down if they’re in the area and show their support surrounding issues on climate change. The event will feature Zumba dancers, carnival drummers and will be big, bright and loud!

With UN leaders holding climate talks in South Africa, now is a great time for the people of the world to stand up and be counted, particularly the Australian government, who need to ensure that –

  • The global Green Climate Fund is up and running
  • Poor countries avoid the worst impacts of climate change
  • Keep the Kyoto Protocol alive

Changing climate around the world is causing disruptions in rainfall patterns, severe droughts and flooding, which in turn is having a huge impact on  millions of poor people in developing countries. This UN meeting will see the world’s most powerful leaders decide the fate of the planet. As the world’s highest emitter per capita, it should be Australia’s job to lead by example.

So if you are in the Perth area on Saturday 3rd December 2011, why not come down and make your voice heard with thousands of other Oxfam supporters, and let the world leaders know that we want action, and we want it now.
