Resistance is catching

FOLLOWING the successful Windrose Resistance Festival last month, 30 people recently attended a talk at Amaroo Village clubrooms to hear guest speaker Rod Mitchell, the Citizen’s Climate Lobby spokesperson. Mr Mitchell outlined his group’s work and led a discussion about the importance of listening to one another.

“We are trying to come back to things we can do in our lives,” Resistance co-founder Anna Ramrath said afterwards. “Instead of focusing on overpopulation we were encouraged to consider alternatives, such as making conscious choices with banking and investments, and clothing material and labour.” Every little step mattered, and continuing to meet and keeping communications open was important, she said.

At 6.30 pm on August 23 at the civic centre ‘Extinction Rebellion – Heading for Extinction and What to Do About it’ will present some hard and heavy facts, balanced by solutions and other good news. Entry by gold coin donation.

Film screenings are planned for the next few months, beginning on September 7 at the civic centre, 2040: Join the REGENERATION, an uplifting and inspirational film about our future.

In October the movie will be Tomorrow, an easy-watch and optimistic documentary showcasing ‘alternative and creative ways of viewing agriculture, economics, energy and education’. The film will be the basis of a discussion-based workshop.

Two other significant events that Windrose Resistance recommend are Permaculture West’s 40-year celebrations in Albany, and ‘Us and Now! A Gather-in with Paul Pule and Friends’ at Lyra House.
