The first mob stood up on the 20th of December 2006 in Perth. The first international action took place on the 3rd of February 2007 in Paris (France). Will you and your friends be the next mob showing their support to the protection of the Burrup Peninsula?  

Why?

Standing up for the Burrup is one means to increase awareness about this invaluable but unknown Australian Rock Art. Your action has the potential to be seen accross the whole world and will (together with other actions) put pressure on the company and government who can save this priceless area.

 

Where?

Stand up wherever you think it will carry the message effectively (in front of some rock art, heritage buildings, famous monuments, bulldozers or simply at popular venues to attract public attention). Be creative!
FARA strongly encourages you to organise a "Stand Up" action at a UNESCO World Heritage site in your country or region. See list here: 

 

Who?

Anyone who is as outraged as we are about the looming destruction of the rock art.  

 

How?
