Current Campaign Actions

Federal Election 2016

Our People-Powered Revolution

GetUP members during the 2013 election in Adelaide. Our movement has had a huge impact on the election result. Over eight weeks, GetUp volunteers made 40,218 calls to undecided voters, handed out over a million how-to-vote cards on election day, and 35,115 people donated an average of just $81 to fund our efforts.

Together we proved that everyday people can shift votes off the hard-right on the issues that matter to our movement.
Take a look at what our movement achieved.

Homegrown Power Plan

Australia is at a crossroads. Coal and gas are polluting our air, poisoning our water and making our planet way too hot to handle. The Homegrown Power Plan, a joint project between GetUp! and Solar Citizens, shows how we can repower the country with 100% renewable power by 2030. By switching away from fossil fuels forever, we can help build a cleaner, greener future.

Can you share the Homegrown Power Plan with your local MP?

Coal Seam Gas

Stop CSG in the Great Artesian Basin

Australia's lifeblood - the Great Artesian Basin - is under threat from Santos' coal seam gas projects. A new report has confirmed Santos' Narrabri CSG project "could be enough to stop bores flowing throughout the basin, which is the sole water source for towns and farms across 22 per cent of Australia." Any risk to this water supply is simply unthinkable and unacceptable.

Sign the petition calling on NSW Premier Mike Baird to halt the unbridled expansion of the coal seam gas industry

Don't Risk Coal Seam Gas

What do Australian farmlands, healthy families and drinking water all have in common? They're all under threat from unregulated coal seam gas mining. GetUp members from NSW and QLD have bravely shared their story of what it's like to live in a community affected by CSG mining

Better Power

Switch to a better energy company today

Right now, more than 70% of Australians get their electricity from AGL, Origin and EnergyAustralia - three of the biggest polluters in the country, with all three supporting or funding CSG and coal-based power. But the good news is we can use our power as consumers to switch to a cleaner, greener, low-cost alternative and help support Australia's renewable energy future.

Ready to switch to an affordable, alternative power company and send a message to the Origin, EnergyAustralia and AGL that we won't stand for companies that invest in fossil fuels? Make the switch today!

Economic Fairness

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement

The Dirtiest Deal you've never heard of

Right now 12 countries, including Australia, have just agreed to the biggest international trade deal you've never heard of. The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) will give multinational corporations the power to sue our government for decisions they claim impact their investments in Australia. Sound too scary to be true? It's already happening. Watch the video that shows the impact this nasty deal will have on Australian families, then sign the petition and sound the alarm

Brighter Budget

GetUp members are getting on the front foot of the fight for economic fairness by launching a savvy fairer Budget campaign. Together, our progressive vision for Australia will highlight the ways our Government can reform the Budget, without putting the burden on students, pensioners and working families. Will you join the fight for fairness?
