"The core of fighting for country lies with getting behind the people who care for it."
Join us as we launch Chain Reaction’s Strong Blak Resistance, the full BlakOut Takeover Issue. This issue showcases the voices of real change from the First Nations organisers, community leaders, and warriors. Voices fighting for Country at the coalface of resistance to coloniser plunder extractivism, rejecting the false solutions of Green Capitalism, and leading in asserting and adapting sustainably sovereign Blak solutions to the two centuries of damage to our ancient Land and climate.
