Below are images from Friday night’s ‘Extinction Rebellion’ protest march in Sydney.
Around 300 people gathered at Town Hall to hear speakers address the critical issues of climate change and ecological collapse. Under the banner of ‘Extinction Rebellion’ - a loose global affiliation of those concerned about the inaction on the environment - the protestors then marched to Parliament House where they were met by a heavy police presence, including the riot squad. After a short sit in, the marchers moved to Martin Place to voice their opposition to government, corporate, media and police power.
