Brisbane's 20 best signs (Global Climate March)

Today is a global climate "strike". Around the world people are gathering to support (perhaps even insist) on climate action.

The park was packed

In Brisbane today's event was the biggest the city has seen. So much so that the park could not hold all the people. Fortunately, the street had already been blocked off. People stood on the road and on the footpaths of adjacent blocks.


Let's get to the signs

I've always been a fan of people's creative signs for these events. Here are some of Brisbane's best.

Kids

With this being the last day of school term, there were lots of kids there (with their parent's permission) and a number of signs were about that.









Some signs featured the Dr Seuss character The Lorax.


Grandparents

Old people showed up for their kids grandkids ... and great grandkids.


Positive encouragement



Witty Signs

Some signs were quite clever, like this one from a university staff member (presumably the health faculty):


This one starts by saying "I like my planet the way I like my men..."


Frustration

Some were just frustrated with the government's lack of action.


That last one is a reference to the current prime minister saying the schoolkids shouldn't be speaking up for the future (being "activist").

What a wonderful world

Some just wanted to say what a wonderful thing the earth is.
