But standing in our way are a small number of hard right politicians who are blocking change for the better. That's why this election GetUp members are taking these wreckers on – going into seats they've held safely for many years.

We're harnessing the power of persuasive conversations and cutting-edge campaign tech to connect with voters on our shared values. Together we'll change what's possible this election.

Warringah and Mackellar Action Groups March meeting

This month we are honoured and privileged to have as our guest speaker, Michael West, renowned investigative journalist. Michael West has uncovered some inconvenient associations, between major coal mining corporations and lobby groups, and the Federal Liberal-National Party - who are happily rubber stamping planet-destroying projects, such as the Adani Carmichael mine. Come along and hear what Michael has to say, as well as hear the latest GetUp news - and of course, the latest from the various members of the Northern Beaches Climate Action Network. Get angry - get active!

Online Letter Writing Party for Climate Action

We're catching up online over Zoom to write letters to our MPs, demanding that they listen to the science and commit to greater action to address climate change. I’d love for you to join me online. Because together, our voices are so much louder.

Barton Action Group's Meeting 27th March 2020

We know that we are facing a climate crisis.  The reality is climate change ruthlessly marches on. Our PM swings from Hawaii to shaking bushfire survivors hands, to becoming spokesperson for Australia's world class health care experts while climate debate is quashed in parliament and Zali Steggall's climate bill gets postponed..We in Barton group had been working toward community information evenings starting with emmissions reduction opportunities to support the nearest Climate town hall meeting.The pandemic precautions meant our information evening has been deferred and GetUp is refocusing their climate initiative to fit our changed environment.I will attend an event on Wednesday 25th where GetUp will outline their new focus and Barton meets 6.30pm Friday 27th which will now be online using Zoom software.  Zoom is a very successful commercial product offering free registrations and I expect first time users shouldnt have any serious problems using it.  More information including video instructions are below, it would be great if you could connect to our Friday meeting.The meetings agenda will be to discuss future campaign initiatives and options, both those coming from GetUp and Barton's own initiatives. We all have empathy for the human issues involved with Coronavirus but I ask that we concentrate on options where we can campaign for a better inclusive and socially progressive future for Australia and address the climate emergency.  Hope to see you online, (dont turn up at our usual meeting place)Mark and the Barton Team
