Right now, the government is deciding how to spend billions in public money to help with the Covid-19 crisis. It's a critical opportunity for them to fund our future, by creating jobs that will Care for Country, fast-track solutions to climate change, and transition Australia to renewable energy. 

Instead, secret plans have revealed that the Federal Government is planning to give billions to their mates in the dirty gas industry. Gas is a dangerous fossil fuel that will turbocharge the climate crisis. Even worse, many destructive gas projects threaten First Nations lands.

There's still time to stop the government's dirty gas plans. But we need to show them that Australians everywhere want them to #FundOurFutureNotGas!

That’s why on Friday September 25th, First Nations communities, school students, unions, and many more will host actions in towns, suburbs, schools, and workplaces across Australia! This day also coincides with a global day of action calling for a climate-led Covid-19 recovery.

 

We’re living in a pandemic, so this day of action is not about turning out big numbers. Instead, it’s about organising as many actions as we can of 10-20 people in small Covidsafe gatherings. For people in lockdown, there are also ways you can organise online actions with your friends.

Join the day of action by registering an action and reading the 'Must-Read' resources!

Resources 

 

OUR DEMANDS ARE No public funds for gas and other damaging fossil fuel projects. Instead, recovery funds should be spent on:

1

Resourcing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led solutions that guarantee land rights and care for country

2

The creation of jobs that fast-track solutions to the climate crisis and help communities recover

3

Projects that transition our economy and communities to 100% renewable energy by 2030, through expanded public ownership

 

Event organisers are encouraged to plan events in line with health and safety restrictions in their location to minimise the spread of Covid-19.

28 union bodies, representing over 1 million workers, have endorsed the Sept 25th day of action! Sign the Organisation Endorsement form here!
