Online – JOIN THE REBELLION – National Online Info Session
May 30 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm
Australia has just experienced a wave of civil disobedience by Extinction Rebellion blockading parliament in Canberra during budget week. With over ten arrests and two members spending a week in prison – things are so serious and it is time we all took radical action.
See this article for the juicy details:
We all know that the disruption of nonviolent protest is minuscule compared with the disruption of natural disasters. We are in the midst of climate breakdown, and we have no time left to lose. In order to protect our loved ones, and all life, we must act with courage and participate in Mass Civil Disobedience to force the system to change.
Come along to this info session to
– meet those who took part in the actions in Canberra and were willing to go to jail to show how serious the climate crisis and our government failure is
– hear the truth about the climate crisis
– find out about Extinction Rebellion
– Ask questions
– And get involved.
This is the year that, together, we change the story. And – if it hasn’t already started – it starts here, and it starts now.
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.
This is an 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, let’s act upon it.
We pay our respects to elders past and present and honour Australia’s First Nations centuries-long battles to protect Country.
