Each of us have a choice to make. We can sit at home alone, shouting at the TV about our wounded world. Or we can join together to heal it.

GetUp is ramping up a national movement of local Action Groups, to fight for a more fair, flourishing and just Australia. We need a new form of power that can challenge the self-serving corporations and right wing media with too much control over our democracy.

We are going to do the one thing they can’t - organise door to door, phone call to phone call. With people power.

Join our movement of people powered impact.

Southside is partnering with Stop Adani Bris to run a massive combined calling party!Now is the time to act. Off the back of relentless community pressure, the ALP has announced they will veto the $1 Billion loan to Adani. This may be out best chance yet at stopping the loan and the mine, and has seriously upped the ante in the Queensland state election. To make sure that Queensland has a government that will help us stop Adani, we need to have thousands of persuasive phone conversations with voters to make sure that Queensland votes in a government that will stand in the way of the Federal government handing $1 billion of public money to Adani. We need 30 people at each session to hit our call target -- will you join us? Can you bring a friend or family member?No training or experience necessary -- we'll provide all the training you need and do it together in a group -- and we'll eat Pizza!WHAT: Mass calling party to voters in key marginal seats to make sure they know where the parties stand on AdaniWHEN Thursday 23rd November, 5.30-7.45pmRSVP using the link on this page

Melbourne Community Calling: Qld State Election

The fate of the Adani mine could come down to the phone conversations we have in these last few days before the election. All around the country GetUp members and many others from the Stop Adani movement have been making an extraordinary effort to scupper Adani's handout. Together you've already made 64,311 calls to Queensland voters.  Join us on Thursday to be part of this massive push to stop Adani at the Queensland election. The polls in many seats are still neck-and-neck. At the last election there were electorates that were won by as few as 126 votes. In such tight races, every conversation counts. We'll be coming together to make the calls that could leave Adani's plans in tatters. We'll also be celebrating the incredible effort we have put in together over the past few weeks. This Thursday will be our last calling party - let's make it a big one! We know direct conversations are the most effective way to make sure Adani face a crushing setback on election day.  All training and resources are provided, so all you need to bring is yourself and your phone! Headphones could be handy too if you have some. We can promise great training, tasty snacks and a few laughs along the way. When: Thursday, 23rd November 2017, 6:00-8:30pm. Where: Green Room - Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth St, Melbourne Bring: Yourself, a phone and some headphones if you have some!
