Event Details

This October, 30 Pacific Climate Warriors will journey to Australia. 

They bring with them an important message: 'the Australian fossil fuel industry, with the support of our governments and big lenders, are planning to build gigantic new coal mines that would double Australia’s coal exports. This fuels climate change, it fuels the destruction of Pacific.' 

The Warriors are here to fight peacefully for their future.

This free event will be part story-telling, part performance and a call to action. 

The Warriors: 

Seia Mikaele Maiava - Tokelau


Mika, as he is fondly called by friends, was born and raised in Nukunonu, Tokelau. He is of mixed heritage with roots tracing back to Samoa. He grew up in Tokelau until he was 16 years old when he was offered a scholarship to further his education abroad. He lived and worked overseas until he was 32, then moved back home to his island paradise. Mika prides himself on the fact that Tokelau is a nation leading the world in renewable energy. Solar energy provides the country with all their electricity needs. “I am inspired to know that this fight will give a chance for our future generations to live on this beautiful Island paradise we call HOME.”


 

Raedena Solomona - Samoa


 

24 year old Raedena Solomona, is a member of the Samoa Victim Support Group Juniors. She will be one of two proud warriors representing Samoa. She is prepared to peacefully defend the dignity of Pacific Island Countries by highlighting the direct impacts of Australian Fossil Fuels on their homeland. During her time in Australia, she will be sharing her stories and peacefully raising her voice for Samoa, and other Pacific Island Countries facing the same predicament caused by climate change.


“The opportunity to protest at the doorsteps of the fossil fuel industry in Australia is a major milestone. This is not for us but for our future generations - what we reap now is what they will sow in the future.”

350 means climate safety. To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current levels of nearly 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number- it’s a symbol of where we need to head as a planet. 

350 AUSTRALIA IS:

  • Part of an international movement dedicated to uniting people globally around the call for climate change action.
  • Committed to spreading an understanding of the science and a shared vision for the need for bold solutions to climate change.
  • Open-sourced and interested in working with any individual or organisation that shares our commitment to climate action.
  • A lean and effective group of people with a big vision for change.
  • An independent and not-for-profit project.
