TAREE, NSW 5th September. Here’s the livestream compiled
What went well:
- The press release worked really well - we got two local news crews filming us , stories in the news the night before, the day of plus in print media the next week! Please feel free to use the release/re-word. Also don’t forget to write EMBARGO on it so that the media don’t share it.
For next time ( or for other groups to learn from)
- lots of cars hated us and beeped a lot -but we turned this into a positive by imagining they were cheering us on. Recommendation for others: Bring signs that say “HONK FOR CLIMATE ACTION” or similar so that we can utilise the honks
- Lack of arrest - the police basically ignored us. We had people keen to make the sacrifice of arrest but the police were not interested in that - we weren’t pushing them enough with our road swarms. This shows that the action has to push the ‘dilemma’ boundaires. I.e. do enough disruption that cops want to stop it from happening.
