Water Is Life:
National Call to Action
After gathering in Canberra, it's time to spread the message in communities across the country that our movement is growing and we are gearing up for even more powerful actions. Already we have brought national media and political attention to these critical issues by taking over Parliament House, so imagine what we could do when even more of us work together.
Together we are planning for more powerful actions right across the country this year, sign up to stay involved!
First Nations young people, elders, community leaders and supporters are coming together across the country, including those communities heavily impacted by water shortages and poisoned drinking water, climate change impacts as well as the relentless expansion of extractive industries, to stand strong for country and send a powerful message to governments and the fossil fuel industry.
Water is life for Aboriginal communities. Our lands and waters hold our stories, our law, our songlines, our culture and have fed and sustained our people since the beginning of time
Right now, water and our water rights as the original sovereign people of this continent are under greater threat than ever before from irreversible gas fracking & oil drilling, mining, forestry, overfishing, toxic chemical spills, industrial agriculture, cotton farming and the dangerous climate change that these extractive industries cause.
We are hurting in the face of unprecedented drought, extreme heat, environmental pollution and the destruction of country and culture. Enough is enough, it’s time that we look to the leadership of Indigenous people who are building strong, sustainable, self-determining communities.
Sign up to stay tuned on where to next!
Can you chip in? Bringing together hundreds of young mob, elders and those most affected from every corner of the continent to Ngunnawal country was way more expensive than we planned for. Donations to our crowdfunder so far helped cover food, water and accomodation and travel but we haven't hit our goal.
