Not my idea of "Banner on the Harbour Bridge".
International Rebellion 2.0 is a global uprising demanding urgent action on the climate and ecological crisis. The first Rebellion took place in London in April 2019 when Rebels disrupted the centre for London for two weeks, resulting in the UK Government declaring a Climate Emergency. International Rebellion 2.0 will see tens of thousands of people in more than 60 countries across every continent join and demand Governments take immediate and decisive action on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
In Sydney, the banner drop marks the beginning of a week of protests and disruptions that will highlight the urgent need for the government to tell the truth about the climate emergency, and act now to curb emissions to prevent the sixth mass extinction phase in the earth’s history.
XR chose the Harbour Bridge as the site for this banner as it is an internationally recognised symbol of Sydney, along with the Sydney Opera House in the background. The aim is to put the Climate and Ecological Emergency on the ‘front page’ of the news worldwide.

Using the Extinction Rebellion "Banner" scale, here's the Sydney NYE fireworks.
