Morning Rebels,

We hope that you’ve enjoyed this period of rest and regeneration after the first wave of action for our End Fossil Fuels Now (EFFN) campaign. We are regrouping in preparation for January when together we will challenge the greenwashing of Santos at the Tour Down Under.

This Sunday is our November All-In Meeting, our last one for the year. This is a chance to reflect and celebrate our last wave of action, hear about what is currently planned for January and get involved.

Please make it a priority to be there.

XRSA November All-In Meeting
Sunday, November 27th at 1pm (New Rebels), 2pm (Everyone else)
The Box Factory,
56 Regent St South, Adelaide

South Australia is worryingly becoming a home for ‘sportswashing’, a practice where companies pour money into sports events and communities in order to improve their public image. We see it with Santos and the Tour Down Under (and Festival of Footy?) and Saudi Arabia and LIV Golf.

It is up to us, people of good conscious, to push back against this practice and hold the government, who is ultimately enabling this, to account.

From January 13th – 22nd we will be holding actions day after day to disrupt Santos at the Tour Down Under. There will be a variety of actions across the state and so lots of opportunities to get involved.

Fill in this form now to take on a role and get directly involved in the campaign. Our power comes from our numbers and so we need you to step into your climate courage with us.

Action planning is already well under way. A more complete schedule will be available soon but for now please save the dates for these public actions.

We also have a hub event on Facebook that will contain updates both in the lead up to and during the campaign. Mark yourself as going and invite your friends and family to join too!

Rebels arrested during the last wave of action will be facing court in late November and early December. You can support them by contributing to the arrestee fundraiser here. Supporters will maintain a presence out the front of the courts. You’re welcome to join them.

Before we finish today’s newsletter we would be amiss to not let you know about last weeks disruption at the Beach Energy AGM. Rebels Ian, Andrew, Harald, Meme, Sarah and Chris entered the shareholders registration area, unfurled banners and unleashed chants and demands to attendees. After 20 minutes the group left at the request police. No charges were made. Outside rebels held large banners, chanted and gave speeches.

You can watch the livestreams here (inside) and here (outside).

We will continue to keep the pressure on the fossil fuel industry and government until our demands are met. We look forward to continuing the struggle with you.

With love and rage,

Extinction Rebellion South Australia
