“Every year over $10 billion of taxpayer money is spent subsidising big polluters, including some of the world’s most profitable mining companies. That’s the equivalent of giving them $65 million from people in this electorate alone.
I would rather this money was spent in the community on public transport, safe well lit bicycle tracks and investment in sustainable energy projects.”
What would you and other Moreland residents rather spend this money on – come and tell us This Saturday 20/4/2013 1 pm outside the Mechanic Institute Hall corner Sydney Rd and Dawson Street Brunswick – help us ‘cancel’ the giant $65 million cheque to big polluters.
The event is part of a series of rolling actions happening across Victoria in the lead up to the Federal budget calling for a substantial reduction in $10 billion dollars in fossil fuel subsidies currently handed to big polluters every year.
Hope to see you family and friends on Saturday
I cycled down and helped setup the table and banner, and took photos of the event. Here is one of my tweets from the event:
