SOLARdarity walk in Cairns

This Sunday 30th September, 4pm
Cairns Esplanade, opposite the hospital

Come along this Sunday to show your support for a renewable energy future for Australia, and more specifically for a revolutionary shift to renewable energy for Port Augusta in South Australia.

Right now, a group of 100 community members are walking the 300km all the way from Port Augusta to the Premiers office in Adelaide to support replacing Port Augusta’s coal stations with a solar thermal power station.

This group will arrive in Adelaide this Sunday and all around Australia, people will be hosting SOLARdarity walks in their cities and towns to demonstrate the strong community support for creating a clean, renewable energy future for Australia.

Port Augusta is a town at a crossroads. With two coal-fired power stations closing, and an opportunity to decide whether they are replaced with Australia’s first solar thermal power station, or with a dirty gas plant. The power company, the local council, local community and businesses all want solar – but to make this happen we need the support of the Premier and the Federal Government. We need to make Port Augusta a national issue.

Cairns supporters will show “solardarity” by walking along the Esplanade through town and to our local politicians’ offices. Come along and show your support!!
