Refugee Rights Action Network WA hosts 'Human Rights Day: Working Towards a More Just Future' in the City of Stirling.
This Human Rights Day, you’re invited to join us in a workshop/discussion around how we can organise in our communities and work alongside refugees and people seeking asylum towards a more just future. While we continue to resist forces that attempt to deny dignity and hope, we must also work towards an alternative vision of what our communities could look like.

Heading for Extinction - And what to do about it?
An introductory talk to Extinction Rebellion and how to get involved.

It's time to get real about the ecological and climate emergency we are facing. Our political system is broken and our leaders are failing to protect us.

It's time to tell the truth and act as though the truth is real. It's time to band together and be effective as part of an international movement of mass participation and civil disobedience. Come and hear about why we need the Extinction Rebellion and how you can be a part of it.

Extinction Rebellion Geelong will be meeting at 2pm on Saturday 18 January to discuss and plan future local actions.

This is our first meeting for 2020.

Meeting will take place in Lower Hall, Geelong Trades Hall, 127 Myers Street Geelong.

We acknowledge that Extinction Rebellion Geelong meets on Wadda Wurrung land, land that was stolen and never ceded. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

Join us for our one-day Community Civil Disobedience training session designed to clarify what Civil Disobedience and NonViolent Direct Action are, why we do it and how to make it work.

IS THIS SESSION FOR YOU? If you have been to a local XR talk "Heading for Extinction and What to do About it" or have watched a talk like Extinction Rebellion Oxford Talk and are ready to get involved in mass civil disruption then this session is definitely for you!
