Sydney: Climate Activists Outmobilize Deniers 4 to 1

A note and photos from Peter Boyle of Australia’s Socialist Alliance …

Some 8000 people demonstrated for urgent action in Sydney’s Belmore Park on April 2 in a powerful counter-mobilisation to a 2000-strong climate deniers rally led by right-wing radio shock jocks Alan Jones and Chris Smith from Radio 2GB held in Hyde Park.

The deniers rally is a repeat of a similar-sized rally held in Canberra a week ago and is part of an attempt to construct a right-populist movement like the “Tea Party” movement in the US. The climate change activists rally was organised by the internet-based group GetUp!.
