Wellington:protest US Secretary of State visit on Tuesday 6th June 12.30pm, Parliament Lawn

Protesters in Wellington

Protest Rex in Wellington

When Rex Tillerson comes to Wellington we will provide the opposite of a warm welcome.

 

Here is a message from 350.org

On Tuesday, the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson is landing in Wellington to meet with our Government.

Rex Tillerson is no warm-hearted man. Before he took the role of Secretary of State to do Trump’s bidding, he was the CEO of ExxonMobil — the company that despite knowing the truth about climate change since the 1960s waged a war of misinformation and denial that robbed humanity of a generation’s worth of time to reverse climate change.

We need to provide the opposite of the warm welcome Wellington normally gives: we need to unwelcome Tillerson from our Parliament, and protect our Government from climate denial and warmongering.

Hundreds of us will join together to protest outside Parliament on Tuesday. Sign-up for alerts about the action here – and start making your placards.

This visit comes at a time when Donald Trump is expected to announce that he will pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement. 2016 was the hottest year ever, and a huge wakeup call. But 2017 is a fire alarm. Pulling the USA out of the Paris Agreement is a crime against our global future.

We need to protect our government from the influence of dirty oil and climate denial. We are mobilising on Tuesday to send a message to Tillerson and Trump that their climate denialism is not acceptable under our watch.

We need you to join us on Tuesday – click here.

Please sign-up then share this message around.

We don’t know yet what time Tillerson is to be arriving in Wellington, and even on the day it could well change. If you have any tips, let us know.

Onwards!

Niamh & Aaron for the 350 Aotearoa team
