Woodford Folk festival was a blast!

There were 4 Carbon Canary events at Woodford Folk Festival. Two workshops introducing the songs and two Pop-Up appearances at other climate-related shows.

The Environmental Defender’s Office ran a mock trial where the great barier Reef brought the Qld Gov to court for endangering its life. Dr Ian Lowe did a a fabby job of defending the Qld Gov while simultaneously ripping them to shreds, and Jo Bragg and Step

The workshops were great. At the first was a long-term parody writer, David Pizza the Poet who handed me these rounds the next day: (Row, row, row your boat and London’s Burning)

Rows and rows of solar farms
Coming all on-stream
Merrily fighting climate change
No it’s not a dream!

and

Planet’s burning, Planet’s burning
Fix the Engine, Fix the Engine
Solar Power! Solar Power!
Yes we oughta, Yes we oughta!

It was wonderful to meet such great activists working hard all over Australia – there were people from 350.org, NT Pipeline, AYCC, people fighting Colton Coal Mine … seeing the smiles and fun we had was really rewarding for me and I hope everyone.
