After 20 years of lobbying for international political action, a group of Climate Warriors from 13 Pacific Islands are travelling to Australia to raise awareness of the Australian fossil fuel industry’s role in promoting the destruction of their homes.
They are reaching out to Australians to join them in the fight to stop climate change at its source.
We will stand in solidarity with the Pacific Islands as they arrive on our shores. We are calling on people right across the country to help build our collective power by generating hope in their community.
Join the Warriors in Newcastle
On October 17th, Pacific Climate Warriors will use the canoes they have built to paddle out into the harbour of the world’s largest coal port – Newcastle – to stop coal exports for a day.
The Pacific Warriors cannot block a whole coal port alone, we need a whole flotilla of Australians to join them to sustain a strong presence for the entire day.
Join a solidarity action
Campaigners across the country will be organising actions to oppose fossil fuel expansion in Australia and stand in solidarity with the Pacific Warriors. Register to hear about trainings and action details.
Divest for the Pacific
Come to the National Divestment Day on October 18th and move your money out of banks that fund fossil fuel projects.
Send a message of solidarity
Gather your family, friends or community group and take a photo with your message of support for the Pacific Warrior’s cause. Let us know you are keen by registering and we will be in touch with resources to help you organise your photo. There’ll be suggestions for just yourself, or a crowd of 100.
The Pacific Climate Warriors have chosen to fight rather than drown. We need to show them that they are not alone in the fight for action on climate change. We look forward to seeing you in October!
