Sybil Disobedients: Aprons, agitprops and climate protest

 

You may have seen them on your telly or in front of the AGL building in Melbourne’s CBD in their hooped skirts and yellow aprons...moving slowly, floating to the beat of a single drum, calling out the government’s continued support for the fossil fuel industries that are destroying the planet.

 

This week on Earth Matters you’ll meet them, the XR Westernport Sybil Disobedients.

 

We hear how it all started, why they do it and what they hope to achieve:  Jeannine Wilson, Talei Kenyon, Annemarie Dalziel, John Lorkin, Hannah Lewis, Julie Edgerton and Jamie Edgerton
