Extinction Rebellion in Wodonga

The following can be attributed to Tim Quilty, Liberal Democrats Member for Northern Victoria:

“People have a right to protest. However, they should be careful about how they do it, or the public may take the kind of direct action which the metro-based activists advocate, and clear the protesters out of the way.

Extinction Rebellion are effectively eco-fascists, calling for the overthrow of democratic governments to address their climate emergency.

We don’t need to shut down industry and kill a few billion people to save the planet – we need to spend a small amount of money transitioning to nuclear power, allowing us to continue to raise our living standards and lift more people around the planet out of poverty.”
