Hundreds of Sydneysiders took the saying ‘bury your head in the sand’ to a glorious level in a protest yesterday.
In of the most literal instances of political protest ever, more than 400 people flocked to Bondi Beach yesterday to protest against the absence of climate change on the G20 summit agenda, The Guardian reports.
The protesters dug holes in the sand of Australia’s most famous beach and stuck their head down for two minutes — some of them performing a little #headinthesandsalute — while a leader bellowed through a megaphone to the protesters.
Their message was clear: while world leaders including US President Barack Obama and Chinesese President Xi Jinping are prepared to discuss climate change, Australian PM Tony Abbott is not.
