Hello and welcome from Groundswell,

Groundswell is a grassroots community based direct action organisation,
advocating for the protection of Tasmania’s natural environment. We

To promote Tasmania's natural environment Groundswell have initiated an
awareness raising campaign, employing Non Violent Direct Action tactics and
applying our skills as alternative media curators, to reach people with our
message and inspire others to take action into their own hands.

We appreciate every group member, as the more people there are, the more we
can do to protect our wild places, habitat, and ecosystems for the future.

Please feel free to come to our meetings, and events, gatherings and
workshops, ranging from climb training to banner painting. Come and meet
the other crew and be part of an inclusive and consensus based community
movement.
