350.org is only possible because of the hundreds of organizations that have joined this movement. Our scrappy core staff could never pull off a global campaign on our own: it’s the thousands of people on the ground who are making this possible. One of the reasons we’re so excited about the October 24 Day of Action is because it will be a chance for the media and the general public to see just how many incredible groups are working on climate change around the world. There’s a global movement out there — you just have to know where to look!

Today, we welcome Southeast Forest Rescue in Australia as a new Friend and Ally of 350.org. Here’s more information from Tony Whan:

SEFR has been on the frontline of native forest conservation in the south east of NSW Australia since 2001.  SEFR is a collective of peaceful-direct-activists voluntarily working for the community and dependent flora and fauna on achieving real protection for all native forests in Australia, specialising in the south-east region of New South Wales – the birthplace of woodchipping in Australia. 

There’s no way we can get back to 350 ppm without protecting forests, so it’s great to know that groups like SEFR are working to protect these vital resources. Tony and the crew at SEFR are already planning an October 24 protest at the South East Fibre Exports woodchip mill exporting facility and will be taking 350 with them, displaying the number on the ground and in the trees around the action.

Welcome to SEFR and all of our new friends and allies. It’s great to watch this movement grow.
