The climate is rapidly collapsing, and life as we know it is under imminent threat. The Australian system's unrelenting extraction and exploitation of the land and people threaten the foundations of our life support systems.

A system motivated solely by profit will not stop unless something - or someone - gets in the way.
How do we build a resistance movement rapidly and under a rigged political system?

Blockade Australia is an organising network of people spanning across the continent. By undertaking direct action at economic pinch-points, we confront the Australian system as a whole. Through resistance of this kind, we begin to create space for new life-affirming horizons.  

Join us to reflect on Blockade Australia’s recent mobilisation, and to discuss how action of this kind puts up a serious challenge to Australia’s climate violence. We'll discuss strategy and the tactics we use, and hear directly from people who took action.

This is a chance to connect with the Blockade Australia network and to be a part of future plans, as well as to find out about local organising happening in your area.

Together, we can make real change possible.

We will also be hosting two other info talks. Please share the register links with your networks.

This event is taking place on Aboriginal land, and we acknowledge First Nations struggles and the ongoing resistance to the colonial project of Australia. We pay respect to all First Nations communities and honour the Elders who came before and are with us now.
