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.

GetUp Hobart - General Meeting

The GetUp Hobart Action Group is holding a general meeting. We meet regularly on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month. Come and meet the team, have your say, and be informed of the local and national issues we face. Newcomers and interested parties welcome!The Electoral Funding and Disclosure Amendment Bill currently threatens the apolitical stance of GetUp and other social action groups, forcing us to be associated entities of major parties. This is a grave attempt to suppress our right to democratic discussion, and we are planning meetings with local MPs and Senators to encourage them to scrap the bill.Are you passionate about climate change?Housing affordability?Pokies out of pubs?Political transparency?A fair budget? Come and have a roundtable chat about these issues, or bring your own concerns, to find out what we can do about them from the grass-roots.
