Protect the Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. They have approved 5 million tonnes of dredge spoil to be dumped in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.This destructive project is now allowed to go ahead -- unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court.

Refugees and asylum seekers
|When in opposition, Shadow Immigration Minister Scott Morrison would cry "boats" as loud and as often as he could. But now he's in Government, he's shed the "shadow" from his title and cast it over the Government's asylum seeker policies. If enough of us chip in, we can fund investigations by journalists, dedicated to finding out what happens inside our detention centres and the stories of the people confined within them. Can you chip in to help put an end to the secrecy?|
Protect our ABC
Before the 2013 Federal Election Tony Abbott said that there would be "no cuts to the ABC or SBS". But the debate has fired up again. First Prime Minister Abbott went on the attack, blasting the ABC for taking "everyone's side but our own". Now the Government has announced an "efficiency study" into the costs of the ABC and the SBS. We know what this is, they've pulled this move before. They're seeing how much they can get away with and the answer is clear; GetUp members have rallied together time and time again to demonstrate we won't allow defunding or the privatisation of our ABC. Let's do it again. Sign the petition to show your support for Australia's public broadcasters.

Don't Risk Coal Seam Gas

National Day of Climate Action!
The last month was the hottest on record.
The new Coalition government is already moving backwards. Right now, it's more important than ever that we make it clear that the majority of Australians want real climate action. That's why on November 17, GetUp members turned out for Australia's biggest ever climate events, right across the country. Check out some of the action from the day here.
