In response to an attempt to persuade Julia that the general public does not want to support a price on carbon, deniers will rally in front of her electorate office in Melbourne this Saturday. Getup and others have determined to show that a greater number of people do support it.
The support rally is at 11 am on this Saturday 12, at Treasury Place.
This is the first public demonstration of support in the face of Tony Abbott's campaign to undermine the confidence of the community in the tax. If a significant number turn out in support of the government's position to move on a price for carbon, then we can begin to turn the tide of the media focus on the negative.
If it becomes the norm to question this move, and community confidence is lost, then the chance of the government losing the vote on this is great.
This must surely spell the end of any attempts to act on pricing carbon or taking any significant action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for years to come - and our time for action is already so short.
Please consider making this the one rally you wouldnt miss
Here is the Getup invitation with an RSVP so they can assess numbers.
