In this video, which you can also find on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram, dairy farmer Rob Miller says that his farm at Milton has been burnt four times since Christmas. Rob is calling on everyday Australians – from the city to the bush – to demonstrate their support for climate action and to get behind rural Australians, who are on the frontlines of climate change.

We believe this is a really good visible, positive, clear, and non-partisan action which all Australians can do to demonstrate to politicians from all political parties that there is a groundswell of ordinary people across the country from all political persuasions and walks of life who want action and leadership on climate change.

Why yellow? It’s the colour of bumper crops, hope for the future, #canariesinthecoalmine, of solar energy!

“Let’s paint something yellow, display something yellow, on our houses, on our cars, on ourselves to show Australians want climate action. Paint your letter box yellow or put a yellow ribbon on your fence, put a yellow sticker on your car – be creative. Share what you’ve done, ask your friends and neighbours to do it too and together let’s show our true colours on climate action.”

Ideas for everyone:
  1. Order a #showourcolours themed Farmers for Climate Action farmgate sign (and display it when it arrives)
  2. Update your profile pic on Facebook and Twitter with this Twibbon that will frame your photo yellow
  3. Share messages of support, yellow images on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter using the hashtag #showourcolours (you can also use #canariesinthecoalmine)
The next level:
  1. Paint something yellow/ display something yellow to show you care about climate change: A wall, a shed, on fire-damaged property, your letterbox, a sign in your front yard – be bold and creative! Most importantly, make sure your sign can be easily seen.
  2. Write “We want climate action” to make your yellow sign really stand out.
  3. Film it and photograph it – have someone video you next to your sign while you also say why you’re doing it, or make it a selfie video. Take some photos too.
  4. Share it – get it out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also, email us at [email protected] and we can put it up on our social media. Ask your friends to make their own sign but also to share your post far and wide. Make sure you use #showourcolours (you can also use #canariesinthecoalmine)

WE WANT CLIMATE ACTION, NOW.

fifth generation dairy farmer from NSW south coast,

"Let`s paint something yellow, display something yellow, on our houses, on our cars, on ourselves to show Australians want climate action.

✊✍🏼🎨#fridayforfuture Action: #showourcolours and write your MP. Tomorrow it’s Friday again 🤗 This is an image of two letters we (Sarah and Zoë, 39 and 2 yrs) made for our MP’s here at the Gold Coast. The yellow corroboree frog fitted the #showourcolours yellow theme well, also because they were evacuated from bushfire areas. It was a fun and uplifting activity for me and my daughter despite the heavy message. 🔸AP4CA Eurobodalla organiser and NSW South Coast GP Dr Michelle Hamrosi is calling for us to #showourcolours.

In a moving video, she recounts her experience of living the ongoing bushfire emergency. It`s an emergency that continues, with high fire danger across the region forcing the closure of schools and businesses today. Video: https://m.facebook.com/ap4ca/posts/2679500485451129 📣 She asks that you join the call, regardless of political affiliations.

To take part, paint something yellow, include a climate action message, then share it on social media using the hashtags: #ShowOurColours and #ClimateActionNow #corroboreefrog #australianwildlife #frogsandtoads #threatenedspecies #mailthatmatters #amphibians #amphibiansofaustralia karenandrewsmp angiebell.mp

Standby for ‘non-making-related’ post or scroll on by... recently there was a ridiculous opinion piece by a certain prominent NSW politician suggesting that rural people had no free thought regarding sustainable energy, management of our National Parks or climate change and that we were being remotely manipulated by guilt-ridden city folk - basically an insult to us all. In response to that and also in support of the bi-partisan #farmersforclimateaction I printed these vinyl static clings. PM me if you`d like one and you too can find a good place to stick it. #farmersforclimateaction #showourcolours ...

Farmers really are the canaries in the coal mine when it comes to climate change," says Broken Hill farmer Anika Molesworth. "Because we live and work so closely with the natural environment, we are, of course, some of the first to feel the true impacts of a changing climate. "We not only need to be addressing the symptoms of climate change and adapting to these changes, we need to be seriously addressing the causes of climate change today." It`s time to #showourcolours for climate and stand with Anika, Rob Miller and rural Australians, who are the #canariesinthecoalmine when it comes to climate change. * Display yellow ribbons or banners on fences, gates, utes, trucks, or paint a prominent shed wall, roof, fence etc yellow
* Share messages of support, photos, videos etc on social media using the hashtags #showourcolours and #canariesinthecoalmine
* Update your profile pic with the Twibbon in the link below that will frame your photo yellow

Let`s turn our social media feeds and our communities yellow and show our support for climate action! https://twibbon.com/support/showourcolours-for-climate
