On Saturday 13th June, I went to the Black Lives Matter protest at Langley Park in Perth. There were over 7,000 people there, even during this pandemic, and thousands more watching the livestream online – which just shows how massive the turnout would have been if Coronavirus fears didn’t create a barrier to those of us more vulnerable to the disease. Everyone was wearing a mask, and spaced out to uphold the 1.5m social distancing requirements.

At 350 Perth, we are constantly striving to be better allies to First Nations people. We recognise that there can be no climate justice without justice for First Nations people.
