Switch Off Hazelwood action update

Only 3 weeks to go till the International Day of Climate Action on Sunday, 10th October. Last year, this was the world's most widespread day of political action in history, and this year the protest at Hazelwood power station will be the lead Australian event for this day. Images and media from Hazelwood will therefore be seen around the world as this global day of action unfolds.


Climate activists lock on at Gillard's office to protest pathetic ALP policy

In a spontaneous response to Julia Gillard's pathetic climate policy announcement yesterday morning, Shaun Murray and Carey Priest from the Switch Off Hazelwood Collective locked themselves to the door of her electoral office in Werribee. After initially scoping out the office and purchasing 'D'-locks from the local bike shop, the pair returned shortly afterwards at approximately 2:55pm yesterday and locked themselves by the neck to the door.
