Activists dump dung outside Aussie minister's office

Dressed in protective jumpsuits, the group placed a sign saying "Climate Pariah" and a copy of the Australian government's long-term emissions reduction plan on the pile after they were done.

The activists were protesting against the Australian government's performance at the recent COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, which they labelled as "weak" in a post on their Facebook page.

Birmingham was also targeted for stating Australia was "over-achieving" when it came to climate change, according to the group.

In response, Birmingham posted a tweet saying he did not want to see anything go to waste, with local gardeners "most welcome to help themselves to some spring fertilizer".
