While we resist every day; in our communities, workplaces & universities we are calling on you to commit to growing the resistance by preparing to mobilise with us & unite in centralised moments to challenge the facade of this colony, as a whole > blockadeaustralia.com/sign-up/

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

The rich and powerful will continue to hoard money while millions of people are displaced from heatwaves, famine, floods and fires.

The system that is failing to respond to the climate crisis is the same one that caused it.

Rallies are great for networking, up-skilling and building solidarity. Every time we rally we build confidence. Every time we march we are practising for the day we take resistance seriously: the day we take the streets and refuse to move.

The state is threatened by caring people talking and sharing ideas with each other.

The strength of our resistance, and the strong networks we form, is what scares them the most.
