Rise for the Reef

  • Jala Yoga Justin's Park Burleigh Heads Australia

SAVE THE DATE : the third event of the Jala Yoga Reef movement. 

The first nationwide event in January raised $2055 for the Environmental Defenders Office and Mackay Conservation Group to battle for our Great Barrier Reef in court. The second event in April raised over $500 for the Wangan & Jagalingou Family Council to support their legal battle for Native Title and to protect their land. 
We have posted over 300 letters to the QLD Government, and the Prime Minister, urging them to steer away from Fossil Fuels and investing (our money) in corrupt, destructive companies like Adani.

This time we are aiming for bigger, and better. 

Our focus : supporting the local Wangan and Jagalingou people in their plight to save + protect their sacred country. 

Yoga, Guided Meditation, Didgeridoo + Crystal Bowl Sound Healing, Speakers, Letter Writing, Live Music, Activities for the kids, and an AMAZING raffle. 

August 13th 2017. 

Aim : 
1) support and stand in solidarity with the traditional custodians - the Wangan and Jagalingou people - of the land which this project will cut directly through. 

2) raise much needed $$ for upcoming court hearings, so that the Wangan and Jagalingou Family Council can afford to continue to fight for their country. 

3) write letters to the Gov letting them know that we are in full support of the Wangan and Jagalingou people, and strongly oppose the proposed Carmicheal Mega Mine. Politicians are legally obligated to read handwritten letters - we all have voices, lets use them via pen and paper. 

Yoga & Sound Healing is a suggested $10 donation, however all is welcome ♥
