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!

Meet at Pacific Park Newcastle, Saturday February 22 at 2pm

The Peoples Climate Assembly is a coalition of action groups working together to make a stand against the ignorance of the Australian government and to demand real action in the face of the climate change emergency. 

Here's the updated schedule for the Peoples Climate Assembly, 2-6 February at Parliament House in Canberra. The program begins on Sunday February 2, 11am with a Welcome ro Country at the Aboriginal Embassy next to Old Parliament House.

Out of control emergency bushfires are sweeping across the state - destroying thousands of hectares, houses, and lives.

These fires, heatwaves, and droughts are not just unprecedented - they're the direct result of decades of climate destruction at the hands of fossil fuel loving politicians.

Australia's climate is changing and as a result we're seeing drier and hotter conditions. The windows of opportunity to safely carry out fuel reduction via back burning are closing, which has led us to the bushfire disaster we are seeing this summer.

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.

Can capitalism solve the climate crisis?

We argue that under a profit driven system, it is not possible to implement the urgent solutions we need to address the climate and ecological crisis we're all facing.

Solutions lie in moving to a society that places human need first, a society that ceases to exploit and commodify people, animals and environment to generate billions for a select few.
