The NSW Government are doing budget estimate hearings over Halloween - sounds terrifying!

Join the THRILLER dance and ZOMBIE WALK to let them know we want climate action included in future planning for a safe and liveable planet.

We’re demanding climate action now from government and industry:

> No new fossil fuel (coal, gas, oil) projects or funding in line with the IPCC recommendations
> End native forest logging and protect biodiversity
> ACT NOW! We need action immediately to curb the worst effects of climate disaster by 2025 (2050 is too late).

On October 29 we will gather at Town Hall Sydney:
- for a few short speeches,
- a thriller dance rehearsal,
- then take our thriller dance and best zombie walk to the streets of Sydney
- followed by a picnic and music in Hyde Park!

Dress: Undead climate zombies

Bring: You're gorgeous self ready to thriller dance (or stumble along as a zombie or signs and banners demanding climate action NOW!)
No PEOPLE on a Dead Planet is an event focusing on humans and human health in the climate emergency.

We’re highlighting that we - people - need a safe and liveable planet to survive. We have to address the #ClimateEmergency to survive.
There is HOPE! By coming together, we can turn the situation around by demanding climate action.

Accessibility: We want this event accessible for everyone. There will be a slower contingent for those with mobility issues and a shorter route for those who need it. Concerns or requests, message the Extinction Rebellion Sydney page or speak to marshals on the day. We'll do our best.

We acknowledge this event will take place on the lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise their fight to prevent ecological destruction since colonisation (which continues today) and we join their continued resistance when we stand up for climate and ecological action and justice.

We’re fighting to protect everything we love from the #ClimateEmergency. There is so much to save and so much that’s worth fighting for.

No JOY on a Dead Planet is a joyous rebellion. We’re saving everything that brings us joy. From your favourite beach or forest, music and your family - we’re saving all the things we love from catastrophic and preventable climate disaster. With JOY itself!
We’re coming together as community to stand together for our collective future - stand with us. Take up space to celebrate what you love.
