5-8000 people marched from Wellington Square to the Hay Street Mall in the middle of Perth city as part of the international weekend of climate action.
The mobilisation took place in the days after serious bush fires in Esperance. Kevin Jolly of the United Firefighters Union was one of the speakers highlighting that bushfire season is starting earlier.
An Aboriginal contingent lead the march in which chants for "people power" as a means to achieve climate action were popular.
The Socialist Alliance marched behind a banner reading "Capitalism kills the climate: ecosocialism is the alternative".
