Find Member Groups

Faced with the extraordinary capture of our governments by the mining industry and enmeshed in a struggle against many of the largest companies in the world, communities have chosen grace under fire and displayed incredible courage, integrity and imagination. Against all the odds people are taking back their power and peacefully building the greatest social movement this country has ever seen.

From the far flung expanses of Central Queensland to inner city Sydney, from the verdant northern rivers to the western plains, from one end of this vast continent to the other, we are witnessing an historic coalition of farmers and conservationists, of lawyers and doctors, of students and retirees who have been united by their deep love of this country.

Together, they are saying that enough is enough, that it has gone too far and now it is time to put the future first, to protect what we have for generations to follow and to build a new democracy that has people rather than profits at its heart. Read more about some of our member groups here.

If you would like your group to be listed, please be sure to join Lock the Gate, and we'll add your details so that people can find you and get involved. If your group has joined Lock the Gate but isn't on this list, let us know so that we can add your details.

We encourage member groups to self-organise, to bear their own unique name, and to adhere to nonviolence.
