GetUp Action Groups are independent, member-led groups in the GetUp network. By joining an action group, you’ll work with other GetUp members and friends in your electorate to build power in your communities and work on (and win!) critical GetUp campaigns. This is your opportunity to link arms with other members and amplify your voice and power.
There are already four GetUp Action Groups running in Sydney, and two in Melbourne. Now it’s time to start in Brisbane!
Connect with your community on the southside of Brisbane at a social get-together in Harmony Gardens (corner Gladstone Road and T J Doyle Memorial Drive) from 3:30pm on Saturday 1 April.
Bring some nibbles to share and join in a discussion about forming an Southside GetUp Action Group. Several issues identified by GetUp engage us all (our Reef, Adani, renewable energy, refugees...), and we can campaign at a local level to raise awareness and make a difference.

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.
