G20 Climate Change mass “bury your head in the sand” protest on Bondi Beach


Hundreds of protesters buried their heads in the sand of Australia’s most famous beach in a climate change demonstration. They wanted to send a message to Aussie PM Tony Abbott and G20 leaders ahead of the 2014 summit.

About 400 people gathered Bondi Beach, a popular beach near Sydney, for the event dubbed Bondi Salutes G20, aiming to raise questions about climate change.

They dug holes in the sand, plunged their bodies in head first and stayed there for several minutes. Some of them even managed to perform handstands with their heads in the sand.

“You have your head in the sand on climate change,” said the organizers from 350.org Australia group, addressing Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

The protesters said they were mocking the Australian government’s reluctance to put the issue of climate change on the agenda of the G20 summit, which is scheduled for November 15-16 in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia.
