GetUp goes in with Gunns blazing
This victory has proved that when we mobilise in numbers, we can demand far more from unsustainable Australian companies. Right now we're considering what more GetUp could achieve in the next few years.

Democracy on trial
An email from GetUp: Two days ago I wrote to you with a question: should we pursue legal action to defend Australians' right to vote? An overwhelming 86% of GetUp members voted yes - so just moments ago, GetUp filed our case for online enrolment in the Federal Court. In addition to this, we're filing a related case in the High Court of Australia challenging the constitutionality of the Howard Government's 2006 Amendments to the Electoral Act. This is the piece of legislation that led to the situation we faced early week, where people had only one business day to enrol to vote.
