Ox­fam puts cli­mate change on menu

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

OX­FAM Australia is launch­ing its new Food and Cli­mate Jus­tice cam­paign this week.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion will hold an in­for­ma­tion night on the new cam­paign in Fre­man­tle on Thurs­day, with fair trade food and shop­ping avail­able for at­ten­dees.

Ox­fam Australia WA cam­paign co-or­di­na­tor Paddy Cullen said he hoped the new cam­paign would act as a wake-up call on how im­por­tant it was to fight cli­mate change now.

“This year we saw Cy­clone Pam dev­as­tate Van­u­atu, the Solomon Is­lands, Tu­valu and Kiri­bati in one of many ex­treme events that are play­ing havoc with the world’s most vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple,” he said.

The in­for­ma­tion night is on June 18. Email pad­dyc@ox­fam.org.au to RSVP.
