Do you live in the Caulfield electorate and care about climate and energy justice?
Are you sick and tired of expensive power bills, greedy retailers and a polluting energy system?
Then join us for a casual community meet-up to discuss how you can make an impact in your local area.
Quit Coal are a collective of volunteers and activists from Friends of the Earth Melbourne. We are campaigning for a socially just transition to clean, fair and affordable energy for all Victorians.
We are organising a meeting of locals in the Caulfield area to share ideas, plan and take action. Putting pressure on candidates from all sides of politics will ensure energy justice is a top priority in the upcoming election.
Results of the Victorian state election in November will have a huge impact on our state’s response to climate change. Your local MP David Southwick – the Shadow Minister for Energy and Resources, Innovation, and Renewables – has no clear policy on emissions reductions and has pledged to scrap the Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET) if elected.
We want to make sure the person who is elected commits to addressing these challenges; through reducing emissions, cutting power prices and creating long-term dignified work for Victorians.
Working together, we can make this election an opportunity to make real change.
So take local action in your area and join us in pushing for an energy system that's fit for the 21st century – a system that's clean, fair and affordable.
See you August 29th, 6.30pm in your local area. Location will be a volunteers home near Caulfield station. You will receive an email with instructions closer to date if you RSVP.
