Blockade IMARC November 22 – 29
For climate justice.
The annual International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) will take place from 23 – 27 November 2020 and has been rescheduled as IMARC Online. Although we can’t have a huge physical presence like last year, we can and will continue resisting the injustice and fighting for a better world.
IMARC online will be very similar to all the other IMARCs. The same people will be there. Talking about the same corrupt shit. This isn’t about stopping one conference in Melbourne, it is about sending a signal to people in power who use their positions and wealth to systematically oppress people that we have had enough.
Although this year we won’t be able to create the revolutionary space we created last year, we can use it to build for next year – creating and strengthening our relationships locally and internationally, deepening our understanding of the extractivist world of IMARC and those fighting it, and sharing activist skills. We will be holding an online counter conference at the same time as IMARC online, and other protest ideas are in the works.
There’s plenty to do to make Blockade IMARC huge! Whether you’re new to the movement or a crusty old timer, there’s heaps of different stuff to get involved in including outreach, promo, helping organise the counter-conference and much more!
