Resources

There are so many wonderful resources for organisers and campaigners already out there – we aim to continually add to a collection here, and write or adapt others for the needs of the Australian community.  We’d like to acknowledge that there are already a range of groups doing good work in this area who have great collections themselves – such as The Change Agency and Plan to Win in Australia, and Training for Change, Seeds for Change, Rhizome Network and Ruckus Society to name just a few international organisations.

Latest Resources

We contributed a collection of resources to the excellent new site, The Commons Library in 2019. You can check our collection here.

We included updated versions of

Digital Security – recent updates.

Legal hand out for activists in Queensland – recently updated

Media checklist for direct action

A legal guide for community activists working to challenge coal and gas projects is available here (4.5 mb), after a successful launch in May 2015. You can also read the FAQ about adapting the resource, and hard copies are available at Environmental Justice Australia.

Also a resource we organised and contributed to for the Walmadan Camp near Broome is available here, and although that campaign has now been won (for now) we reckon it has a range of very helpful information.

You can find out about the role of police liaison and check out a Beginners guide to a blockade camp for people who have never been to a community blockade before.

In 2013 we launched a report into the training needs of grassroots activists and campaigners in Australia – check it out here.
