(Community Recognition Statement, 12.30pm 28 November 2013, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
I congratulate GetUp! Action for Australia on holding the very successful National Day of Climate Action on 17 November 2013.
Some 60,000 Australians participated in the event at Prince Alfred Park, including thousands in Sydney who braved the rain. The sea of umbrellas was indicative of the strong conviction of Sydneysiders that serious action needs to be taken on climate change and that all levels of government should work together to address this growing crisis.
