This gathering is in-person - we'd love to see you at our XR HQ, however for those for whom that's not convenient you can attend via Zoom as well: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5256267273?pwd=bEpuV2hTQkVOekliT0srTHlFY2Nydz09 Equal parts inspiration and strategy, this session will provide you with the key information you need to find a way to meaningfully tackle the absolute shi#fu#kery of our current situation characterised by: - Current and escalating climate and ecological breakdown, - a complicit political system beholden to the fossil fuel elites and - a concerned yet inactivated population (you might say sleepwalking off a cliff) Everyone is welcome. The first 30 mins of the gathering will be a chance to hear from others and share your story about deciding to act on this emergency. Then we will share our plan of mass mobilisation - which means growing our numbers and coming together in escalating waves of rebellion til we have 10’s of 1000’s of people participating in nonviolent civil disobedience across Australia, and the key resources we have developed to help us do this. The second half of the session, beginning at 3:30, will cover: the practicalities of where the Vic mobilisation team is up to, a check-in on our current goals for starting new local XR groups, and the ways that you may be able to help. This gathering takes place on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, we acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. We acknowledge that First Nations people around the world have been on the frontline of extinction and in rebellion for a long time, and that continues to this day. We acknowledge that we are in a climate and ecological emergency, and our actions today have implications for the very habitability of our planet.
