Naomi Klein calls on Australian movement leaders: To Change Everything We Need Everyone
On 9 November, 2016 Sydney Peace Prize recipient Naomi Klein appeared in conversation with Lenore Taylor (The Guardian), Murrawah Johnson (Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Council), Maria Tiimon Chi-Fang (Pacific Calling Project), Nadine Flood (CPSU) and Shen Narayanasamy (GetUp!) discussing the need for transition to a post-carbon Australia.
The event highlighted the important work done by women leading their communities in the fight against climate change, and brought together powerful voices from frontline communities fighting for climate justice, the climate science sector, the union movement, the human rights sector and the media.
We heard courageous and inspiring stories from Murrawah Johnson about the Wangan and Jagalingou people’s struggle to stop Adani from opening Australia’s biggest coal mine in history, and Maria Tiimon Chi-Fang who is seeing her beloved Kiribati disappear below the sea level.
