Find below excerpts from newsletters that supporting groups have sent out to their members:
This morning I actually wrote a letter, a plea for climate action. I found a real envelope and a real stamp and used the wonderful guide supplied on this website www.massmailoutforclimate.org
Have you ever thought of writing a letter to a politician BUT - too busy, don't know what to say, and above all "it won't make any difference" or "what's the use?". I've thought like that, often. BUT today I wrote that letter, and it will make a difference.
Robert has written a letter too. It will be one of thousands of letters all arriving at the one PO box, sorted daily by an amazing group of volunteers, and delivered en masse to Zali Steggall to make fantastic media images to promote support for her Climate Change Bill.
And Peter wrote a letter. We were on Zoom so I took a screen shot.
If you too write a letter - you and your friends and family - it will help reach the goal of thousands of letters and a great photo opp to show the politicians there are thousands of people who really do want action on climate change.
There are lots of sample letters to choose from on this website www.massmailoutforclimate.org
Letters need to be in the mail by Thursday 30 September - that's six days away - so I'm sending this now before you receive our full newsletter next week (still a work in progress).
From now to September, an expected 30,000 letters will be collected in a post office locked bag in Canberra and delivered to independent parliamentarian Zali Steggall at a media photoshoot event in October. In the media, images showing the delivery of thousands of letters will tell an impressive story of the level of support Zali Steggall has from the Australian people for her proposed Climate Change Bill. It will help consolidate Steggall’s mandate to push even harder for parliamentarians across the floor to vote for it. You can read more about Zali Steggall's Climate Change Bills here www.climateactnow.com.au
