Spirituality and The Planet
6:30-9pm at The Three Monkeys, 58 Mollison St, West End, West End 4101
How do you make sense of the faith tradition you’ve come
from? How does your spirituality affect your lifestyle and the kind of
world you want to live in, or leave behind? Can we listen to Science and still
believe in God?
At our first meeting it was decided that we would meet again and bring some friends. Come along and meet like-minded people from diverse faith backgrounds who are passionate about the Earth.
Join us. We want to hear your story and see what emerges. This is a safe space. Everyone is welcome.

West End #StopAdani Door knock kick
3-6pm at Bunyapa Park Corner Thomas and Vulture Streets, West End 4101
Adani has started illegal work, cut the cost of their rail line in half and have locked in finance to start digging! Meanwhile, our new Prime Minister is a big supporter of coal billionaires.
Adani is pushing to start work, but together we can make sure 2019 is the year we stop this mine and get our pollies taking real climate action.
West End is kicking off this year by hitting the streets in
West End- to our communities know what is at stake, invite them to join our
movement and put up signs on every fence!
Post-Woodford Trip to the Frontlines
to Stop Adani!
Jan 2nd- Jan 16th
Adani’s announced it will start work before Christmas, without an approved Groundwater-Dependent Ecosystem Management Plan, without consent from traditional owners and with the opposition of the majority of Australians who know the facts about coal. We need mass people-power on the frontline of the Stop Adani fight early on in 2019 to make sure the Galilee Basin is never opened up to coal mining. So this year, don’t pack away your tent after Woodford, come join us in protecting our planet from catastrophic global warming.
Sign the pledge here to receive more information:
Use this space to get car pooling. Stay for a week, a month or until we Stop Adani! See you on the frontlines!

Meanjin (Brisbane) Invasion Day 2019
For First Nations people, January 26th 1788 marked the start of genocide, dispossession, displacement, and oppression.
January 26th is not a day to celebrate a country built on these atrocities. It’s not a day to embrace white nationalism or colonialism. January 26th is a day to protest!
We will be gathering at Emma Miller Place, Roma Street at 10am, starting speeches at 10:30, and marching through the city and South Bank at 11:30am.This event will be held on the lands of the Jagera, Yuggera, Yuggerapul and Turrbul people. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded, this land was never ceded, and it always was, and always will be Aboriginal Land.
