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!
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.
