The reason the state knows we are powerful is because we are not isolated individuals. We are a part of a global wave of direct action, obstruction, disruption & cultivation that is opening the possibility for a world without exploitation or ecocide.

Yesterday, we had meet-ups in 13 different places on this continent and schemed and dreamed of ways to grow our resistance to Australia’s climate and ecological destruction.

Thanks to all the new faces that showed up!

Australia is hurtling us blindly towards a cliff edge from which there is no return.

We need to get in the way of a system that's blocking paths to safety, before we lose any chance we've got.

Connect with on Aug 6 to make the change we need.

Direct action means thinking and acting for ourselves.

It means finding another way, instead of validating the slow, ineffective and inaccessible mechanisms that exist within the system to ask for change.

Today 7 people are facing court for outrageous charges from NSW Police.

2 of these people are Max & Tim, denied bail & held in prison for planning to resist Australia’s climate destruction.

No one should be kept in a cage.

The state violence experienced by BA represents a tiny fraction of the volume of violence directed at First Nations Peoples on this continent since 1788. End the colony.

They are trying to silence these voices, but we are powerful together. Resistance will continue. The climate movement is global & its growing and evolving.
Join us, its now or never.
