Everyday people want action on climate change, a fairer society and they love our ABC. But time and again, the hard right’s toxic politics stand in the way.
Our polling shows this is making hard right MPs, like Abbott and Dutton, more vulnerable than ever before. But we need to start early and get to work in every corner of the country if we’re to have a chance against their big money politics.
Come to GetUp’s Adelaide Election Launch to learn about the power of ‘persuasive conversations’ with voters and how you can be part of it. It’s effective. It can be done from anywhere in the country. And it can only be done by a truly grassroots, people-powered movement.
Come along to our Adelaide Election Launch and learn about GetUp’s strategy to take on the hard right (proven and honed through several elections), find out what’s on the line, and how you can work with other locals to have the greatest impact.

WHEN: Arrive 6:45pm for a 7pm start, Tuesday, 12 February
WHERE: The Gov, 59 Port Rd, Hindmarsh, Adelaide, SA, 5007

State and Territory Ministers will decide this month whether to retain GM CRISPR** regulation, or to declare open season on the makeup of all animals, plants, microbes and humans.

Alert from Conservation SA
Government plans for an Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) plant at Leigh Creek.
“We’re very concerned because people live in that area and it’s time for healing of the site, not any more destruction. Leigh Creek is the basis for our law this must be stopped.”
Vince Couthard, Adnyamathnha Traditional Lands Association.
Local community say NO WAY and, with people around the state, are urging the Marshall Government to dump plans for UCG at Leigh Creek and ban this risky and extreme technology.
UCG was banned in Qld after it caused the biggest pollution disaster in that state’s history.
If it’s banned in Qld, why is it coming to SA?!
On Tuesday September 18, 2018, Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners are seeking an injunction on the UCG trial on their lands at Leigh Creek.
Can’t make the snap action? It only takes a few minutes to call Mining Minister Dan Van Holst Pellekaan on 08 8642 3633.
Urgent action is required to bring this dirty plan to a halt!
Show your support and take a stand against dirty and unwanted gas projects in our state.
