Climate Change Activists Dump Pile Of Manure Outside Aussie Politician's Office
Climate change activists have delivered a not-so Happy Friday package to an Australian politician.
Anyone walking in or outside of Finance Minister Simon Birmingham's Adelaide office would have found it difficult to miss the huge, stinking pile of manure at the front door.
Activists attached to Extinction Rebellion filmed themselves dumping the literal pile of crap outside the premises.
They claimed it was because Australia's performance at the recent COP26 climate summit in Glasgow was a 's**t show' and that, out of every country's commitment, Australia's contribution 'stunk most of all'.
So they decided to turn their feelings into something literal.
They live streamed their dramatic protest on social media, showing demonstrators in hazmat suits debagging the manure onto the ground.
An unnamed woman said in the video: "We've come to deliver a little bit of a message to Mr Birmingham as our representative to take back to the federal government.
"We are currently in a climate code red and all we've witnessed lately is Glasgow's sh*t show.
"We have left a nice message of some very organic horse manure which hopefully senator Birmingham will feel quite at home with, with all the sh*t that's been going around."
They clearly haven't been impressed by the government's plan to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
To be fair, there have been plenty of Aussies who weren't won over by Prime Minister Scott Morrison's pledge to lessen its reliance on fossil fuels and stick to clean energy.
The federal government will be hoping for new technologies in the coming years and decades that will hopefully alleviate their biggest polluting issues.
However, Extinction Rebellion said Scott Morrison's government should be ashamed to have brought that plan to COP26.
A post on Facebook said: "[Australia] also refused to sign global pledges aimed at limiting methane emissions and phasing out fossil fuel production.
"Instead, the government continued to shamelessly spruik coal and gas. Birmingham assures us that Australia is 'over-achieving' on climate. That's what ScoMo was going to tell the world at COP26.
"There's political spin and then there's BS. Clearly Birmingham is full of it. The #COP26 climate summit was bulls**t and Australia's contribution stunk most of all."
Senator Birmingham didn't seem too upset over the manure outside his office and simply called on 'eager' gardeners to help themselves to the crap if they wanted to refresh their garden ahead of summer.
