Floods, fires, melting ice caps and record temperatures. Scientists warn we are entering the danger zone for runaway warming and societal collapse!

It's a Code Red for humanity. Governments must declare a climate emergency, take action to halt the warming, and begin the enormous task of climate repair. Our government must act on their duty of care to protect us and preserve a liveable planet for our children.

Thanks for joining us in March

We're still calling on governments to take action now.

Money also helps

We are all volunteers and do this for love of life. We can make a few dollars go a long way but what you see on your television screens didn't happen without some expense.

Flyers get the word out, art materials make the rebellion beautiful and huge banners make the message visible. We hired a hall to run workshops, fed hungry rebels and built a strong community. Because the fight is not over and we need to keep going.

Please donate as little or as much as you can to help us meet our expenses (if you can).
