Social evening - Celebrate the Climate Strike and chat about our Next Challenge:- Fracking. 11th Oct

The Climate Strike filled the Domain (Sydney) after a great many people put in a herculean effort to mobilise their communities. 

The Barton Team would like you to join us for a casual pub evening to celebrate the Strike and share ideas with like minded people for our next climate challenge - Fracking.

Australia is the third largest exporter of CO2 fuels in the world and the Morrison government is keen to export more.

Origin Energy plan to start fracking in Aboriginal communities across the beautiful NT — threatening to release the equivalent climate pollution of 50 new coal-fired power stations.

We are keen to build on the tremendous community success of the screening of the film 2040, an uplifting story leaving nearly all the audience going to the climate strike. Together we can build a stronger community voice, with people power we can turn the tide.

If you haven’t heard from us before, we're a team of local GetUp members who share a passion for environmental justice, human rights and economic fairness. 

What: Social evening, celebrate the climate strike and chat about our Next Challenge:- Fracking. 
Where: The Marrickville Ritz, 252-254 Illawarra Road Marrickville, NSW 2204
6pm, Friday the 11th October

Share ideas for the Day of Action, Monday 14th October
And for Origin’s Sydney AGM, Wednesday 16th October

Even if you are unlikely to attend, an rsvp means we can text you if the venue or details change so you are ready for an encounter with a friend who is keen to go, or if you find you can get there after all.

Some useful background What is Fracking

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Mark and the Barton team.   

- We appreciate Boomerang Bags Inner West sponsorship of the 2040 film screening.
- Barton Action Group is not constrained by our electorate and supports many other areas.

I acknowledge that we meet on the land of the Cadigal, Gweagal and Biddigal Clans of the Eora Nation. I wish to pay respects to their elders and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within Australia and the GetUp community.
