Imagine this: a big, bold movement, leading mass mobilisations and powerful community organising to move Australia beyond coal.
We see the impacts of climate change every day - from floods, to bushfires, to drought and extreme weather events. Yet, Australia’s coal industry is still the largest polluting export industry on the planet - and it’s trying to massively expand.
With 69 proposed new coal projects across NSW and QLD, and 28 approvals sitting on Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek’s desk, Australia must be at the epicentre of the global movement for climate justice.
That’s why we need a movement that demonstrates grassroots opposition at every major announcement by coal companies like Whitehaven. A movement that is building intense community pressure on Tanya Plibersek and other Labor leaders to cancel approvals. A movement that is deepening relationships and solidarity with First Nations communities resisting coal expansions, and helping to elevate their demands for cultural heritage protection and land rights.
This is the future for Move Beyond Coal, but we need your help to make it a reality.
It will take a passionate, connected, people-powered movement to phase out coal this decade and set us on a path to climate justice. Will you help?
In 2023-2024, your donation will pay for:
- Training and support for action teams to build political opposition to coal, mobilise en masse and increase community pressure to cut ties with coal;
- Visits to frontline First Nations communities resisting coal expansions, enabling deeper relationship building with communities fighting on the coal face;
- Identifying, elevating and developing grassroots leaders through training and support, and facilitating leaders to learn from counterparts globally;
- The resources to convene and grow a network of partner organisations and grassroots groups in Australia that are committed to growing a powerful, justice oriented movement to tackle coal finance and politics.
Can you chip in to help us build the future of Move Beyond Coal and organise for climate justice?
