More than 400 Australians flocked to Bondi Beach on Thursday to bury their heads in the sand in mock protest of the Federal Government’s refusal to put climate change on the agenda at the G20 Summit.
The protesters singled out Tony Abbott in their chants and highlighted that other world leaders will speak about the issue.
This comes just days after the US and China signed one of the biggest climate change agreements in recent years.
“If other countries want to raise other subjects they’re entirely welcome to do so but my focus will be on growth and jobs,” Mr Abbott said on Thursday.
