Spring Rebellion

Spring-rebellion-aus-twitter-header-1

It's time to act as if the truth is real.

We are in a climate and ecological emergency. Our political system is failing to protect us. We must act now.

During Spring Rebellion, with your help, we will bring mass, non-violent, civil disobedience to the streets of Adelaide. Events throughout the week will bring disruption to the city.

Our plans for the Spring Rebellion are ambitious but necessary given the state of the crisis. The success of the rebellion will be determined by the number of people we can mobilise for our actions. We need your support now more than ever.

Please complete this form so we know how many numbers we can expect and help fill required teams to make the rebellion successful.
