Greenpeace




Being silenced by a corporate bully would be devastating.
And the scary thing is, this could really happen. After years of Greenpeace successfuly campaigning to protect the Great Northern Forest, one logging company, Resolute Forest Products, is trying to silence Greenpeace and our ally Stand.earth by suing us for hundreds of millions of dollars.
If they win, Greenpeace’s ability to advocate for forest protection anywhere in the world will take a huge blow.
Help us shine a light on Resolute’s unjust attacks.
Sign our message to the publishing industry, representing some of Resolute’s biggest paper customers, asking them to stand up for free speech!
We need 500,000 signatures by May 31 when we’ll take your message to Book Expo America - one of the largest publishing industry gatherings in the world. Your voice will help us convince publishers to stand up for free speech and the forests.
Will you help us reach our goal of 500,000 signatures today?
Call on the publishing industry to support Greenpeace and stand up for free speech
For us to win, we need support from Resolute’s own customers. Many major publishing companies - like Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and Hachette - source paper from Resolute. So we’re asking the publishing industry to stand with us. We want publishers to do two things:
  • Ask Resolute to produce book paper without harming intact forests and threatened wildlife habitat
  • Encourage the company to stop attacking free speech
Can you ask the publishing industry to support Greenpeace and stand up for free speech?
Acre by acre, Resolute is destroying some of Canada’s most vibrant, ancient forests. But rather than working with Greenpeace on finding solutions, Resolute is trying to hide its actions by suing us as a form of intimidation - trying to force us into silence.
Help us fight back against Resolute by enlisting a new set of allies in the fight: the publishing industry! Speak out now.
With your help, I know we can win for the forests and free speech.
Together,
Amy Moas, Ph.D.
Senior Forest Campaigner at Greenpeace
P.S. These lawsuits could be a huge blow to our work to protect forests. And it would also set a precedent for other corporations that bullying activists is an effective tactic. Help us fight back! Ask the publishing industry to join us in the fight.

GetUp Freedom of Speech

The gag on medical workers has been lifted!




Have you heard the amazing news?!1,2,3,4,5,6,7 ... you get the picture – this is big.

Doctors4Refugees and Fitzroy Legal Service have announced a major win in their High Court case against the Border Force Act.

In a huge backdown, the Turnbull Government has dropped the gag rule that stopped doctors and health professionals speaking out against the child abuse, sexual abuse and medical negligence they witness on Nauru and Manus Island.

This is incredible news for medical staff – and it happened thanks to the donations of GetUp members like you, and with the support of the Grata Fund, a new legal fund initiated by GetUp to hold power to account in our courts.

It's a massive win. But it's also a cowardly legal manoeuvre. The government left the gag rule in place for all other potential whistleblowers, like teachers and social workers, just because they weren't part of the case.

By removing the Border Force Act gag rule from just…

Indian Pollution

From The Guardian

Coal isnt all that good for humanity although Tony Abbot says it is, India has closed a coal fired electricity plant down for plant for 10 days to help reduce the pollution. The plant wasnt the main cause of the extra pollution but never the less must be throwing out a lot of muck to make it worth shutting.
