The Rise for Climate event was on Saturday, September 8, 2018. It saw hundreds of cities and towns around the world join together to hold peaceful rallies and protests calling on the world’s leaders to take action on climate change.
A rally at Newcastle’s beautiful Bar Beach was organised by Stop Seismic Testing Newcastle and was attended by hundreds of people from all across Newcastle and the Hunter. It was a great event and the energy was fantastic.
I documented the rally along with some of the other members of the Photograph Newcastle photo group I’m part of. It was a frantic hour of shooting but a lot of fun and it was great to be a small part of a cause I really believe in.
