Scoop Images: Emissions Trading Scheme Protest

Scoop Images: Emissions Trading Scheme Protest


By Rory MacKinnon

Libertarians are not particularly well known for their solidarity, but around a hundred ACT supporters, farmers, climate change denialists and other rugged individuals marched on Parliament Tuesday to protest the Government’s Emissions Trading Scheme.

The demonstrators then presented a petition which was received by ACT Party Leader Rodney Hide and fellow ACT MPs John Boscawen, David Garrett and Heather Roy.
