Climate change protestors arrested by police

September 23, 2015 1:03 am

About fifteen people have been arrested by the police for protesting outside the Australian High Commission in Tamavua, Suva.

It is alleged the group made up of 3 different NGO’s did not have a proper permit for the protest.

The groups include Feminists Activist, Pacific Partnership Gender Climate Change and Sustainable Development and members of the LGBTIQ.

They were protesting against Australia and New Zealand’s stance on climate change after the recent Pacific Islands Forum.

The two sides agreed to disagree on the Pacific’s call for emissions to be lowered to the point where global temperatures would not increase more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, with New Zealand and Australia opting to stick to their target of 2°C, saying that any further reduction would have an adverse affect on their economies.

The protestors have been taken to the Samabula Police Station for questioning.

A comment from police is expected later as the two police spokespersons, Ana Naisoro and Atunaisa Sokomuri are currently in a meeting.
