Snapshot of anti-renewables rally at Parliament House


The rally, held on Feb. 6, attracted coalition-party speakers including National Party parliamentarians David Littleproud, Barnaby Joyce, and Matt Canavan. Former United Australia Party and Liberal Party member Craig Kelly also spoke.

On a Smart Energy Council webinar on Feb. 9, federal energy minister Chris Bowen said that the opposition parties were “whipping up community concern” about renewable energy development.

The Smart Energy Council sent a photographer to the event (so, you didn’t have to) and here is a snapshot of the day – which provides insight into the demographics, colourful characters, and politicians engaging in the aspirant anti-renewables movement.
