Tell the Australian Government:

The divestment movement is a global community of citizens concerned about the future of our planet. We're not extremists: we believe that keeping the planet safe from the threats of climate change is reasonable -- and so does science.

Banning freedom of speech and the right to campaign IS extremism. We urge you not to repeal these basic rights.

Coal companies in Australia are pushing the government to make our fossil fuel divestment campaign and other boycotts illegal. We need your help to push back.

The Minerals Council of Australia can't win the fossil fuel divestment argument on the merits. Their desperate insistence that climate change isn't an issue, Australians love coal, and their toxic products are good for the world rings increasingly hollow.

In an article in the Guardian, they called us a “small number of noisy extremists.”

The real extremists are the coal and mining companies that are willing to wreck our country and climate for profitThe divestment movement is a huge, global network of schoolteachers, religious leaders, students, parents, and regular people who think it's time to invest in a real future and a livable climate. Add your voice if you're one of them.

So now they're trying to ban divestment campaigns outright. Don't let them get away with it.
