I went to a protest at Queensland Parliament House against Carbon tax. I haven’t really formed a strong opinion about it but I try to cover some political events in Brisbane. I have previously covered a pro-choice vs pro-life event but I didn’t write an article about it because the issue is too sensitive for me to muddle through it.
For carbon tax I think there’s two main arguments:
- The science of climate change, is it true or false.
- Will a tax actually do anything about it or will it just cost the public more.
I dont know the details of who gets taxed and how much or how that gets done and I lean towards the science being true but I havent made up my mind. I took some pictures and recorded a video. You can click the images to see them fullsize.
I took 26 photos, I think I took a photo of all the speakers and many more of the crowd and their signage, you can see the rest on the facebook album or if you prefer higher quality without the social networking then visit the No Carbon Tax Protest album on my gallery.
I recorded parts of the talks by the speakers that you can watch below.
If that doesn’t work for some odd reason then watch No carbon tax protest Brisbane 2011 video on youtube.
