GetUp Sydney HQ / in Sydney, Australia

In the last year, we’ve made incredible progress in breaking apart the government's abusive policy of offshore detention. GetUp members have been speaking out about business in abuse, we've shifted public opinion and made a strong impression in Canberra. 

Together, we've changed the political situation in Australia. We've been chipping away at the foundation of the detention regime – and it's beginning to crumble.

But with Manus Island Detention Camp set to close, the men trapped on the island are still in limbo. And if there’s one thing GetUp members are good at, it’s getting something onto the political agenda. So we need to band together, and strengthen our call for the government to #BringThemHere.

To do that we need events and cut-through tactics rolled out across the city and we want you to be a part of it. 

A group of GetUp members will be gathering in the Sydney office next Tuesday to talk tactics and strategy. Can you come? RSVP here!

GetUp Newfarm Office / in Newfarm, Australia

Did you know Queensland gets only 4% of its power from renewable energy?

The Queensland government is currently considering how we can increase the share of renewables as part of our energy mix, but they're facing some stiff opposition from the powerful coal and gas lobby.

On 12th October, we're calling GetUp members across the State encouraging them to add their voice at Queensland's renewable energy forums. This is our chance to start crucial action on renewable energy in the Sunshine State. 

Nothing is more powerful than people in our community talking directly to each other. Join other GetUp members for a fun and effective evening reaching out to others in your community.

Got more questions? Call GetUp Organiser Ellen Roberts on 0408 583 694, or email her at ellen@getup.org.au.
