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.

Puppet build

Tired of the same old last minute rush for something to stand out at Rallies or demos? Then come along and join the GetUp MelbWest Action Group for social get together and to build a couple of new demo puppets. A new way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice DayNo experience necessary, though some sewing and wire work skills would help. We’ve got an experienced artist and a puppet builder on hand to guide proceedings.The Plan We’ve got a list of things to build, including a Planet Earth Puppet and a wearable planet earth, plus some coal lumps on the attack.  First puppets will be built from rattan and calico, tied together with wire and whatever we have to hand. We’ll have materials on hand to build to our plans and specs only, but there’s a degree of professional winging it. We’ll start with a briefing to gather ideas and direct the build and to brainstorm new ideas. We’ve got a follow-up session on Sunday 18th November to complete the build and gather new ideas Who should come? People who want to help out and find out more about getting involved with GetUp! Members of other GetUp action groups who would like to find out what’s involved or might like to borrow the completed puppets Members of MelbWest Action group What to bring Materials supplied (unless you’ve got ideas of your own you want to try out) Wear comfortable old clothing – prepared to get messy Gardening type gloves if you want to protect your hands For more information, contact Kevin Brennan on 0405 021 105
