Civil Resistance will #StopAdani
Galilee Blockade aims to protect the Galilee basin from coal and gas extraction. We have been successful so far but the threat is greater than ever. We are committed to powerful nonviolent discipline and currently target companies working on Adani’s proposed Carmichael coal mine with citizen blockades and other disruptive tactics.
Our rigged political system has failed. It threatens the very survival of countless ecosystems and species, including humanity. A clear majority of Australians want to stop the Adani mine. Powerful billionaires and compliant political parties have stymied the will of the people. Civil resistance is the final and necessary step for us to win.
Civil resistance is a powerful strategy that changes the status quo. It moves power from the vested interests to the people – where it belongs. Civil resistance movements shift the political spectrum of what’s possible.
Galilee Blockade will join other groups to go beyond conventional political protest. Sustained non-violent tactics like strikes, boycotts, street occupations and blockades will communicate our refusal to take no as an answer.
Civil resistance is not easy. It directly challenges powerful people and institutions. It requires large numbers of people to risk arrest or sanction, normally for very minor offences. It requires even more people to support and resource bold tactics.
