Fearless Summer Australia is a movement escalating across the country, to take action to stop the industrial scale destruction of our native forests. Everyone who supports real forest protection is invited to take part in this movement for change. Co-ordinated grassroots non-violent direct actions will take place in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales – as well as anywhere that you would like to organise one! Solidarity actions can take part any where in the world. Contact us if you want help to organise an action in your area, or send us your info, media releases or pics and we’ll post it to the website.  For events happening over the summer… checkout the movement Calender HERE.  Email us to add your event or action: fearlesssummeraus@gmail.com
