The people's climate march in Canberra

Given the vested interests involved, and the short termism that engulfs 
both business and governments, coupled with each country battling for a 
competitive advantage over the others, I do not think capitalism can 
solve the crisis of climate change. Our marches show we can raise our 
voice for action. However to win our demands for real results ('Turn 
bull into action' was one clever sign at the Melbourne Rally) we need to 
have a say in the outcomes. That means in my opinion not making polite 
representations to the representatives of a system addicted to and 
dependent on fossil fuels but fighting for greater democracy to win real 
action on climate change.
