It is time again to join hands at Glenelg Beach and say NO to risky deepsea drilling in our Great Australian Bight and YES to clean energy and a low carbon economy.
BP along with other mining giants are planning on drilling for oil in the Great Australian Bight late 2016.
It is time we send a strong message to our leaders and the rest of the world that we must protect our Great Australian Bight, and invest in renewables for a better future not outdated fossil fuels.
THIS YEAR WE WILL #JoinHANDS to #FIGHTFORTHEBIGHT.
Hundreds of people joining hands to say yes to clean energy and no to inappropriate exploration and drilling in our seas.
This is a family friendly event and everyone is welcome.
Speeches, secret headline muscian, street theatre art performance, facepainting, community stalls, kids art corner, treasure hunt, sand sculpture competition and more.
Wear something BLUE to show your concern for our marine environment.
This event is part of an international day of action, with events being held all around the world. Sister events are happening all across southern Australia including on Kangaroo Island, in Ceduna, Port Lincoln, Streaky Bay, Melbourne, in Western Australia.
