Young protesters in Dunedin expressed their frustration over inaction on climate change yesterday.
About 50 young people gathered to make sure people heard their message — that political parties are not doing enough about the climate crisis.
The protesters gathered at the Museum Reserve and created letters and art, before marching to MPs David Clark’s and Michael Woodhouse’s offices to hand them over.
Placards read "vote for climate", "back our future and we’ll back you" and "I’m voting for her".
Chanting and singing could be heard from blocks away as the protesters made their voices heard.
Vote Climate 2020 spokesman Adam Currie said no political party was doing enough about the climate crisis.
"Politicians have proved that they’re not going to act on the climate crisis until their jobs are on the line, so we’re here to let them know that if they don’t step up their game on climate, we’ll vote them out.
"The stakes for the 2020 election have never been higher — the action we take this election cycle will determine the future we are passing on to the next generation."
The window of opportunity for action on the climate crisis was fast closing, Mr Currie said.
"This election cycle will determine whether the economic recovery to Covid-19 will create a clean, low-carbon future for Aotearoa — or leave our generation not only with an economic debt to pay, but an ecological one as well."
