Petition update

Rally at Cairns Regional Council on Wed 12 Aug

Extinction Rebellion Cairns

Aug 7, 2020 — 

Hello all Spectacled Flying Fox (SFF) supporters! We are now over 47,000 signatures!  Please help us get to 50,000 signatures by Tue 11 August. 

We will be rallying at a meeting of Cairns Regional Council at 9am on Wed 12 August.  You can watch it live-streamed.  To watch go to

Cairns Regional Council originally said they would disperse-evict the SFFs for five days.  Then when it didn't work they extended to 30 days.  As that has also not worked they have extended the eviction to 90 days - well into the final stage of pregnancy and into the birthing season.  How dare they! 

Councillor Rob Pyne who is possibly the only Councillor opposed to the dispersal-eviction will be moving a motion to stop the eviction and asking questions.

Send in more emails to Mayor Bob Manning at

Please also help share the petition some more so we get to 50,000 signatures by Tue 11 Aug.  Thank you so much!

We are sending in multiple complaints to Federal and Qld State government and they are launching an investigation!  Let's keep up the pressure!

We will keep building this campaign until we shut down the harassment and eviction of the SFFs, so they can give birth to their new pups in peace!

Thank you all so much for your ongoing support!

From JahFe, Riah, Sev, Katey, Billy, Carol, Oden, Tanya, Lani, Patty, Susanne, Becky, Isa, Caddie, Lani and the rest of the Team!
