The Action Group brings together GetUp members from eastern Melbourne to get to know each other and jointly take up national GetUp campaigns and local issues aligned with GetUp principles. Current activities around the Stop Adani campaign include phone banking from members' homes, street stalls and letter writing.
There couldn't be a more important time to get involved with your local action group. Come along to meet like minded people from your area, and to act together on vital campaigns.
There is another Action Group in Melbourne's inner/north, and plans to establish more in the future.

The list of companies walking away from Adani’s toxic brand and climate-wrecking mega mine keeps growing. 59 companies, including 16 major insurers, have now ruled out working with Adani.
But Lloyd’s of London is still working with Adani to help the mining giant find insurance for its disastrous project.
Let’s flood the Lloyd’s office with calls now and let them know that allowing insurers to underwrite Adani’s coal mine is a risk we cannot afford!
Adani can’t build or operate their destructive coal mine and rail line without insurance.
A staff insider from US insurance giant AIG has confirmed AIG is insuring part of Adani’s mine project. Now is the time to tell AIG to insure our future, and not to renew insurance for Adani’s destructive coal mine.
On September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, the #StopAdani movement is stepping up to join the Global #ClimateStrike led by young people from the School Strike 4 Climate movement.
