This is probably the fourth attempt this year to mobilise #StopAdani Geelong. An attempt to take our climate concern away from the keyboard.
We started out because of a shared concern about what would happen if the giant carbon bomb which is the proposed Adani mine became operational.
Sure there was lots of disappointment at the election result and the subsequent approval of the mine by the Federal govt, but it still isn’t up & running. 1000’s of people including some in this group have pledged to do all they can to stop this toxic mine.
Please ask yourself:
Why did I originally decide to be part of this group??
Has anything happened to lessen this concern?
What’s stopping me from being involved now?
There are several ways of getting involved.
Some could be:
Going up to camp near Bowen in Central Qld to help up there. This doesn’t necessarily involve risking arrest, there are lots of non arrestable tasks that are essential to the smooth running of the campaign.
If u can’t do this, perhaps you can contribute funds to help run the camp, pay fines etc
U can take part in local campaigns to stop this atrocity.
An extinction rebellion group has started up in G’long, so has a group called Break Free Geelong and there is also Friday’s for Future.
All of these are easy to find on fb.
Fortunately these two groups are starting to collaborate to give a united front that is so, so important.
The main tactic at the moment is to get as many G’long residents, ratepayers & visitors to sign & share the online petition asking that the City of Greater Geelong council shows a #dutyofcare to its constituents & declares a climateemergency, or sign the paper version &/or contact the councillors in person &/or ask to address council at their meeting about why u think they should go down this path when they start looking at this motion at next Tues meeting.
They most likely won’t decide at next week’s meeting & this campaign will continue through till their August meeting when they will.
So lotsa choices there folks.
What will u do?
Would be great to see some response to this.
You will never be asked to do anything u are uncomfortable doing. You will be encouraged to get out of your comfort zone, but someone will always be there to ‘have your back’ as u experience the growth of your personal power.
Enough from me. What will u do now???
Questions? Concerns? What do u need to help u become (more) active? ... See MoreSee Less
