Now is the time: How to get 10,000 people on the street in 2021

January 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:45 pm

What a rollercoaster 2020 has been! And so exciting to finish with mass actions in Perth, Hobart, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney – not to mention the coal port blockade in Newcastle.

We have come so far and yet have so far still to go. Let’s get together and celebrate this amazing movement we are building: Extinction Rebellion. Let’s listen to inspirational speakers who have helped us to set out on this journey, and testimonies from those among us who have found the courage to step up and make a stand.

This meeting is for rebels new and old to learn about how we are going to get a ten-fold increase in our numbers next year, and get tens of thousands of people on to the streets taking part in nonviolent civil disobedience. We all have a role to play – especially you.

This gathering will:

Connect you to rebels across the country, sharing stories of where we are at as we enter the fateful year of 2021
Inspire and inform you with our plans for achieving the biggest act of mass civil disobedience in Australia’s history in 2021, starting with the wave of actions beginning on March 22nd
Give you the concrete steps you can take to help us achieve our goals as a movement – when we say loud and clear to fellow Australians – “let’s be honest with each other, we can no longer go on like this betraying our children by destroying this beautiful land” and say to this government of ours “you do not represent us if you continue to refuse to save our children from disaster. You need to slash emissions now and stop destroying our natural heritage. This is a national emergency”.

Each of us has a vital and valued part to play. We need to step up to mobilise everywhere – to get others involved. We need to organise our media – getting in the press and social media to get the word out there. We need to organise our mass actions – helping with nonviolence training, getting everyone to the right place at the right time, and providing all the support for those who get arrested.

This is a national emergency like no other. We are in no doubt about this anymore. Everything is at stake. Come to this gathering because life is never going to be the same again. We all know it, lets act upon
