Right now across Australia, widespread fires and extreme weather are endangering our people, homes and ecosystems. Nationwide, people’s feelings of fear and anxiety about the future of our country are reaching boiling point.

It’s time to get PM Scott Morrison’s attention!

Our message is clear:

“Dear Prime Minister, we call on you to meet immediately with emergency leaders including Greg Mullins (former Fire & Rescue Chief)”.

You can add your voice to this message by taking two simple steps:

1) Sign this petition and hit 'Share'

2) Use the hashtag #attnscottmorrison
when you post images of the current fire emergencies across Australian states,
along with the petition link.

This is how you can tell your Prime Minister that you want him to meet with emergency experts to discuss firefighting resources, climate action and a national emergency summit! 

We understand that the priority right now for many Australians is, and must be, to remain vigilant and safe. So this call out is for those of us who have capacity to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with affected communities. 

As Hon. Jacinda Arden says, “we have to start moving beyond signs of hope, and deliver signs of action”. 

Please sign and share today! #attnscottmorrison
